Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of a Notice of Grant Award from the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance Grant Program.
BACKGROUND
The Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) has a Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA) grant program. The Texas Legislature created the FVA to provide grants to address the needs of veterans, their families, and survivors and to enhance veterans’ assistance programs, including veterans’ representation and counseling. The FVA receives funding from generous individual and corporation donations, the Texas Veteran’s lottery scratch-off game, directed contributions from the State Employee Charitable Campaign, and donations from motor vehicle registrations.

On February 1, 2012, the Commissioners Court accepted a grant award from the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance in the amount of $150,000. The objective of the grant project was to provide limited emergency assistance for veterans and their families. The project was a collaboration of several County departments: Human Services, Veterans Services, and Grants Administration.
DISCUSSION
On January 22, 2014, the Commissioners Court ratified the submission of a grant application for the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance Grant Program, Series XIV-B. The application mirrored the objectives set out in the previous awarded grant in assisting veterans and their families with emergency financial needs.

The grant award is $125,000. No cash match is required for these funds. The grant will begin on July 1, 2014 and end on June 30, 2015.
