Grants for Veterans
Veterans Services employees report that a $125,000 grant was issued
to Nueces County Texas July 1, 2014, and is available to all veterans who live in Nueces County Texas, and who meet eligibility
criteria. Unfortunately, some veterans had to be turned away because they didn't meet the county’s requirements.
A veteran must have proper ID to start the process.
A Veterans Affairs grant will help homeless veterans
in Central Texas pay rent, learn to manage a budget and be a better parent; however, the assistance is limited and participants
must meet specific requirements.
This is the program’s fourth
year. The VA estimates the grants will serve about 115,000 homeless and at-risk veterans’ families nationwide. The program is spearheaded by Families in Crisis, a nonprofit organization that houses
and supports people experiencing family violence, sexual violence and homelessness. The grant will serve 210 at-risk veteran
households annually. For more information call 254-773-7765.
