The Grant County Veterans Assistance Program is administered by the Grant County Veterans Service Coordinator (GCVSC) - this is NOT a Service Officer. The GCVSC is responsible for providing Veterans in need with temporary, emergency assistance. Additionally, the GCVSC will assist nationally recognized Veteran organizations (American Legion, VFW, AMVETs, etc.) with providing similar assistance. These organizations have trained staff on duty to assist Veterans with the program. The GCVSC will assist Veterans in need with assistance. The GCVSC will also refer Veterans in need of assistance to other agencies that may be able to assist.
Funding for the Grant County Veterans Assistance Program comes from the Citizens of Grant County through their property taxes. Anyone who owns or rents property in the county contributes to the program, including many veterans who have or will use it. It is not charity. It is assistance to veterans in need of recognition of the service they rendered to their country when it needed them.
A veteran, widow/widower of a veteran, or a dependent of a veteran is eligible for assistance provided the individual meets the following requirements:
Typically, a DD Form-214 (DD-214) proof of Honorable or General discharge under honorable conditions, a Veteran’s Administration registration card or other military id may be used. Assistance may be provided to help the veteran attain the proper identification.
You can contact the Grant County Veteran Services Coordinator by phone at (509) 754-2011, extension 2931 or by email at [email protected].. You can also be referred from any local, national recognized, veterans service organization.
