Check out the newest Veterans benefits in Michigan

Whether you’re just getting out of the service or you’ve been a civilian for years now, the VA Welcome Kit can help guide you to the benefits and services you’ve earned.

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – States offer Veterans a wide range of benefits, and Michigan is no exception.

“Michigan’s newest benefit is our County Veteran Service Fund (CVSF) grant. The CVSF allows counties to host outreach events, hire Veteran service officers, and market their services to Veterans,” said Midwest District Vice President Zaneta Adams of the National Association of State Directors of Veterans Affairs. “In addition, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, participating counties can also utilize these funds to assist Veterans with vehicle and home repairs, medical expenses, groceries and personal care items and meet other needs determined emergent. Veterans of all eras can take advantage of the emergency funding opportunities while also becoming more familiar with resources that are available to them and their families.”

For more information, Veterans can find the Veteran Service Office in their county or call 1-800-MICH-VET.
