Meeting Minutes and Agenda Archives

Who runs the program?

The Grant County Veterans Assistance Program is administered by the Grant County Veterans Service Officer (GCVSO). The GCVSO is responsible for providing Veterans in need with temporary, emergency assistance. Additionally, the GCVSO 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.

Where does the money come from?

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.

Who is eligible for the program?

A Veteran, Widow/Widower of a Veteran, or a dependent of a Veteran is eligible for assistance provided the person has been a resident of Grant County for six months.

How is eligibility determined?

Veterans who can prove financial need based on US Government published poverty thresholds. Financial need cannot be caused by mismanagement or illegal activity.

Proof of eligibility:

A 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 will be provided to help the veteran attain the proper identification.


Types of Assistance Available:

  • Rent to prevent eviction.

  • Utilities to prevent cut off.

  • Food and necessary items for hygiene and health.

  • Burial assistance.

  • Medical, Dental, and Travel assistance to be determined on an individual basis.
