The 2022 Week of Valor applications are now being accepted!

The Veterans Community Alliance of Louisville (VCAL) is currently accepting applications for events to be held during the 2022 Mayor Greg Fischer’s Week of Valor. Coinciding with Veteran’s Day, Louisville’s 9th Annual Week of Valor celebrates Veterans with a weeklong series of events to honor and commemorate the contributions of our community’s past and present service men and women, Veterans, Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, and their families.

Held November 1 - 11, 2022, the Week of Valor events will focus on honoring Veteran contributions to their country and facilitating their successful transition back to civilian life.  Applicants should propose an organized event or virtual event, motivated by the desire to honor, and serve these valiant men and women in our community.  VCAL’s Week of Valor Committee will review all applications and select a variety of events for community-wide celebration and promotion.

If you have an event for the 2022 Week of Valor, please complete the full online application by clicking the link below, by midnight October 9, 2022.
