For Immediate Release – February 7, 2019 Veterans Benefits Administration announces district realignment
WASHINGTON — Today, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) announced a geographic restructuring, from five districts to four, a change that will align regional offices and special missions more evenly. The realignment closes the North Atlantic District Office in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and shifts states into more geographically similar areas. The District Office located in St. Louis, Missouri, will now be responsible for the newly realigned Northeast District. “The VBA district realignment is part of our effort to modernize the organization and become more efficient,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie.
