Thirteen East Texas Organizations Awarded Veteran’s Assistance Grants

Commissioners award 147 grants statewide totaling over $33.4 million & serving over 32,500 veterans

On May 13, 2021, the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) awarded $33,430,000 in Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA) grants to 147 organizations throughout the state. The highest number of grants and funding awarded in the 11-year history of the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance grant program. In east Texas, 13 organizations were awarded grants, listed below*. Additionally, 12 organizations awarded provide services statewide**.

The 2021-2022 TVC grant projects recipients to provide direct services to over 32,500 veterans, their dependents, and surviving spouses starting July 2021. They will announce the grant amounts and program details for each organization’s contracts with each organization’s execution. The funds awarded are for the upcoming grant period of July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022.

The grants support a wide range of services from emergency financial assistance to transportation, legal services to family support services, and home modification to rental and mortgage assistance. The TVC grants awards in five categories. They are for General Assistance, Housing for Texas Heroes, Veterans Mental Health Grants, Veterans Treatment Courts, and Veteran County Service Officers.

Veterans in need of assistance can find the organizations providing help in their area and how to contact them at https://www.tvc.texas.gov/grants/.

Funding for these grants is generated primarily by the Texas Lottery Commission’s games designated for veteran support. Other funding sources for the contributions come from individual donation options on drivers’ licenses, licenses to carry a handgun, outdoor recreation licenses for hunting and fishing, and vehicle registrations.
