$10 Million Gift Establishes RAND Veterans Policy Research Institute

The RAND Veterans Policy Research Institute has launched with the goal of generating creative strategies and interventions to address issues facing veterans and military families. It was established through a $10 million gift from the Epstein Family Foundation, as part of the Tomorrow Demands Today fundraising campaign.

The institute is directed by senior policy researcher Carrie Farmer and senior behavioral scientist Rajeev Ramchand. The core research agenda will include analysis to better understand how military service and post-service experiences affect the short- and long-term needs of veterans and their families. Through partnerships with veterans and the community organizations that support them, the institute will pursue innovative research that informs veteran policy at the national and local levels.
