The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal on behalf of U.S. Veterans Initiative to fund a program incorporating a physical activity (surfing) and a social work intervention into a therapeutic group for returning combat veterans that would teach them a new skill, utilize local natural resources, and enhance a traditional form of group therapy. The literature review highlighted barriers to treating veterans returning from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, and supported the need to develop innovative interventions on their behalf. The search for funding sources for this grant proposal was conducted by exploring various websites, utilizing the grant-searching database at Long Beach Nonprofit Partnership, and contacting local veteran service organizations. The Wal-Mart Foundation was selected as the primary funding source for this therapeutic surfing program. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
