In 1944, the Louisiana Office of Veterans Affairs was created to provide local services to Louisiana Veterans and their families. As the number of Veterans in the state grew, so did the need to expand programs and services to support their needs. Thus, in 2003 the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs (LDVA) was established as a cabinet level department of the State of Louisiana with the mission to provide comprehensive care and quality service to Louisiana’s Veterans and their families with regard to health care, education, disability benefits, long-term care, and burial honors.

Our mission is to provide comprehensive care and quality service to Louisiana’s Veterans and their families with regard to health care, education, disability benefits, long-term care and burial honors.
