RECOMMENDATION

BACKGROUND
The Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) has a Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA) grant program. 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: Social Services, Veterans Services, and Grants Administration.

On June 18, 2014, the Commissioners Court accepted a second grant award in the amount of $125,000. On July 22, 2015, the Court ratified the acceptance of a third grant award for $125,000.
DISCUSSION
On October 14, 2015, the Commissioners Court authorized the submission of a grant application for the Series 16-B Fund for Veterans’ Assistance grant program. The previous three projects were extremely successful and all funds were expended for the most previous grant award.

The grant award is for $125,000. No cash match is required for these funds. The grant period begins on July 1, 2016 and will end on June 30, 2017.
