VIP – Veterans Independence Program 

In 2011 the Veteran Directed Home and Community Based Services Program, also known as VIP (Veterans Independence Program), started out as a pilot in Vermont and the program rapidly grew beyond expectations.

VIP is available to Veterans through a partnership with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, the Vermont Area Agencies on Aging, and ARIS Solutions. The goal of this program is to provide Veterans with support, funding and guidance to help manage their own care needs at home. Veterans are given the tools to hire, train and supervise Personal Care Attendants (PCA) that assist them with daily living needs for care, respite and/or housekeeping.
