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. “This transition affects the management oversight and reporting structure for regional office directors, but will not affect day-to-day operations for employees or impact beneficiaries.”

The realignment does not affect the daily operations of any regional office.

After the restructuring, the four district offices will be:

Northeast District: St. Louis
Southeast District: Nashville, Tennessee
Continental District: Denver, Colorado
Pacific District: Phoenix, Arizona
