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. 




The Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship provides GI Bill benefits to surviving spouses and children of servicemembers who have died in the line of duty since 9/11, but those benefits expire after 15 years. Full tuition & fees paid directly to the school for all public school in-state students. For those attending private or foreign schools, tuition & fees are capped at a statutory maximum amount per academic year.  A monthly housing allowance and student will receive a books & supplies stipend.
