first_img Categories: Lilly News 12Feb Rep. Lilly: We must invest in local veteran service offices Lawmaker is cosponsor for bill providing counties grants for veteran servicesState Rep. Jim Lilly of Park Township last week cosponsored legislation encouraging Michigan counties to establish and maintain veteran services through a new grant program.Under this legislation, each county with a veteran service office that satisfies pre-approved requirements would receive $25,000, plus an additional amount based on the number of veterans in the county. To continue receiving the grant, an established county veteran service office must meet benchmarks for staff performance and reporting while maintaining the previous year’s funding level.“We must ensure that our veterans are being taken care of,” Lilly said.  “Investing in local veteran service offices will give veterans, who have fought for our rights and freedom, the resources they need and deserve.”Under the current veteran’s benefits system, the state supplies the Veteran Service Coalition with a grant to provide benefit services to veterans. Depending on the county, a Veteran Service Officer may only be available for a few hours each month at a single location. This bill provides incentives to counties to develop or enhance a tool for providing sufficient services for veterans.House Bill 5536 was referred to the House Military and Veterans Affairs Committee.###last_img read more
