Event Travel Assistance

Through the grant we received from the  Dept. of Veteran Affairs, we are able to offer limited travel assistance to our military veterans and active-duty service members who are competing in key ITU elite events in 2016 as well as the National Championship. The events we are able to provide funding to are:

  • 2016 CAMTRI Paratriathlon Championships - Sarasota, Florida - March 12-13
  • 2016 Sarasota Bradenton Triathlon - PC Open Division - Sarasota, Florida - March 12-13
  • 2016 USA Paratriathlon National Championships - Santa Cruz, California - August 14
Athletes who are eligible to receive a travel grant must be placed on the specific event's start list. Once an eligible athlete has been confirmed on the start list, USAT will reach out to the respective athlete with the amount of travel assistance available as well as information on how and when to submit for reimbursement.

Please be aware that this travel assistance program is only for current or former U.S. military paratriathletes.

VA/USP Training Allowance

Through a partnership with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, the VA Paralympic Program Office helps to provide a monthly assistance allowance for disabled Veterans of the Armed Forces, as authorized by section 703 of the Veterans’ Benefits Improvement Act of 2008. Through the program, the VA will pay a monthly allowance to a Veteran with a service-connected or non-service-connected disability if the Veteran meets the minimum military standard or higher (i.e. Emerging, Talent Pool, National Team) in his/her respective sport at a recognized competition.
