The NRD Search Widget, located in the WWP Resource Center, serves as a single point of access to the more than 14,000 government and non-government services and programs listed on the NRD that support America’s service members and veterans. This new tool allows visitors to quickly and easily access resources by simply entering a keyword to get information on benefits, education, health, family and caregiver support, housing and more.
The NRD Search Widget represents an important step in ensuring that members of the nation’s wounded warrior community have access to the resources they need where they live and work by facilitating the spread of information without creating duplicate websites. It can be implemented on any organization’s or individual’s website and is maintenance free because it automatically updates when new information is added to the NRD.
“We are honored to be working with the NRD,” Steve Nardizzi, WWP Executive Director, said. “Because the mission of Wounded Warrior Project aligns so closely with that of the NRD, it made sense for us to combine forces. We can now provide support to wounded warriors and their families by giving them immediate access to thousands of quality resources.”
“The Wounded Warrior Care and Transition Policy Office is always thankful for efforts that support the wounded warrior community, by assisting in the dissemination of relevant resource information to our wounded warriors, their dependents and survivors," Koby Langley, Special Assistant and Senior Advisor to the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense, Office of Wounded Warrior Care and Transition Policy, added.
The NRD is a collaborative effort among the U.S. Departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs.
