Millions in Grants Available to Veteran Serving Programs
 
 
Three separate Request for Applications are now open for General Assistance, Veterans Mental Health, and Housing4TexasHeroes (H4TXH) grants totaling $7 million in available funds from the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA) grant program. TVC encourages all eligible applicants to apply for this funding, and all applications are due by 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 9, 2014.
 
“This is the first time that all three grant opportunities have been available during the same period and will help Veterans across the state,” said Thomas P. Palladino, TVC Executive Director. “Through the support and collaboration with the Texas Department of State Health Services, we are able to provide a specific grant to those organizations seeking to fund Veterans Mental Health projects, and we are pleased that the 83rd Legislature continued support for Housing4TexasHeroes grant.”
 
Eligible grant applicants are local governments, 501(c)(19) posts or organizations of past or present members of the Armed Forces, 501(c)(3) private nonprofit corporations authorized to conduct business in Texas, and Texas chapters of 501(c)(4) Veterans service organizations. 
 
Through these grants, to date, the TVC has awarded $32.9 million in 168 grants to 104 different local organizations serving Texas Veterans and their families through Veteran-specific programs and services. As of September 30, 2013, these organizations have served 167,804 Texas Veterans and dependents.
 
General Assistance Grants – Series XIV-B
General Assistance grants address a broad range of needs, including: limited financial assistance; transportation services; housing assistance; family and child services; and information and referral to other services. The current amount available for award is $2.5 million.
 
Veterans Mental Health Grants
Projects funded under the Veterans Mental Health Grant should emphasize direct services to Veterans and their families and may include: peer and groups sessions, Veteran family member counseling, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) services, equine therapy, co-occurring diagnosis counseling, and other types of counseling; and Veteran drop-in centers, locations operated by eligible applicants, which includes staffing by Veterans, for Veterans and their families. The current amount available for award is $1.5 million.
 
Housing4TexasHeroes Grants (H4TXH)
H4TXH grants will go to organizations addressing home modification needs of low-income, very low-income or disabled Texas Veterans and their families. Such needs include, but are not limited to: walkways, ramps; doors, windows, and flooring materials; sliding doors; handrails and grab bars; bathroom modifications; and weatherization. The current amount available for award is $3 million over two years.
 
All grants are reimbursement grants with the minimum grant award of $5,000 and the maximum grant award of $500,000. The number of awards will be dependent upon the FVA grant amounts awarded to eligible applicants. All information, including the application details, about these solicitations are posted to the TVC website at http://tvc.texas.gov/Apply-For-A-Grant.aspx.
 
Individuals can support these types of local organizations by making an online donation through www.tvc.texas.gov or on their vehicle registration form by specifying an amount at the bottom right corner of the form.

TVC Employment Counselor presented with the Seven Seals Award
 
On November 5, 2013, Patrick Driscoll, the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) Family Employment Assistance Counselor (FEAC) in San Antonio, was honored by the Texas Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) with the presentation of the Seven Seals Award. This award is presented at state and national levels to honor a person or entity that significantly advances the ESGR mission.
 
Two years ago, the ESGR received a new task from the Department of Defense to implement the Employment Initiative Program (EIP) to assist military service-members, their families and Veterans in finding jobs.
 
Under that umbrella, ESGR acted in partnership with the Department of Labor, TVC, and the Texas Workforce Commission in a collaborative effort to streamline the job-hunting process for military members, their families, and Veterans.

The award was presented to Patrick Driscoll, FEAC, by State Senator Leticia Van de Putte, State Representative Phillip Cortez, and O. Findley Brewster, ESGR
[color][font]
 
As soon as EIP was established, Driscoll was appointed as a liaison between EGSR and the TVC San Antonio Employment team. He was recognized for his diligent efforts, consistent counsel, and guidance in promoting this effort.
 
The EIP helped improve the processes designed to assist them in finding and securing employment. ESGR has been a national leader in bringing this concept to fruition.
