Blinded veterans and their families can assist BVA in increasing support for legislation to secure loans for vision research projects and other biomedical research. The “Long-term Opportunities for Advancing New Studies (LOANS) for Biomedical Research Act” (H.R. 3437) would infuse critical private sector dollars into clinical trials for the treatment and cures that many researchers are anticipating.

The LOANS Act would help fund vital research for degenerative eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, two primary causes of blindness for many of our nation’s veterans.

Please join with BVA National Headquarters and fellow blinded veterans in requesting that your Congressional representatives support H.R. 3437 now. To take action and advocate for this legislation, (CLICK HERE) to fill out the form and send a pre-filled email to your representatives.

Thank you very much for your support.
