Our Mission

The RAND Epstein Family Veterans Policy Research Institute, housed at the RAND Corporation, is dedicated to conducting innovative, interdisciplinary, evidence-based research and analysis to improve the lives of those who have served in the U.S. military. Through a range of partnerships, the institute prioritizes creative, equitable, and inclusive analysis and evaluation to meet the needs of diverse veteran populations while engaging and empowering those who support them.

Our Partnerships

We work alongside those who support veterans, including national and community-level organizations and service providers, to stay current on veterans’ evolving needs and to quickly reach those who are positioned to put research findings into action.

Our Sponsors

Our research sponsors strive to improve services and support for veterans at all levels of government, across national support networks, and within veterans’ communities. They value rigorous, independent, and nonpartisan research and analysis as they anticipate the future needs of veterans and their families and as they strive to improve current systems of support.
