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. On July 13, 2016, the Court ratified the acceptance of a fourth grant award for $125,000.
DISCUSSION
On October 26, 2016, the Commissioners Court authorized the submission of a grant application for the 2017-2018 solicitation for the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance grant program. The previous four projects were extremely successful and all funds were expended for the most previous grant award.

This fifth grant award is for $150,000. No cash match is required for these funds. The grant period begins on July 1, 2017 and will end on June 30, 2018.
