ABOUT STAND DOWN 2020

The Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) is pleased to announce that we will hold STAND DOWN 2020 on September 24th and 25th.  While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way agencies and organizations operate, the DVA continues our commitment to serving Connecticut’s Veterans by providing this “one stop” access to a range of programs and services offered by state and federal agencies, Veterans organizations, and community based non-profits. We hope this new approach to Stand Down will help more Veterans across Connecticut connect with the programs and benefits they have earned. 

 ONLINE REGISTRATION WILL BE REQUIRED TO ATTEND A REGIONAL SITE.
