More than 22,000 veterans in seven counties will find it easier to file a federal benefits claim with an accredited county veterans service officer, thanks to County Incentive Grants awarded by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA).
This is MVAA’s second round of one-time grants, and funds awarded include:
$10,000 for Clare County Veterans Services to increase the accredited county veterans counselor to a full-time position.
$20,000 for Crawford County to establish a county department of veterans affairs and hire a full-time accredited county veterans counselor.
$10,000 for Dickinson County Office of Veterans’ Affairs to hire an additional part-time accredited county veterans counselor.
