There are a myriad of Federal, State and local programs available to Veterans and their families. The eligibility criteria for government programs are often complex and difficult to understand. The Veterans Center of North Texas can help you understand the benefits and eligibility criteria for Federal, Veterans Affairs, and Texas state and local programs. We have helped Veterans and their families receive benefits for government programs to include the following:
VA Disability Benefits
VA Burial Benefits
Dependents and Indemnity Compensation (DIC)
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps)
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)
Social security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
GI Bill Programs
Hazlewood Act (Education benefits for Texas Veterans)
Texas Land Bank Loans
"I was able to apply for my DD214 from their office and had it in hand within two weeks" - Greg S.
VCONT provides Veterans and their families with information on how to qualify for GI Bill benefits and how they can be best used.
Educational benefits may be available to Veterans who entered military service from Texas. These Veterans may be eligible for additional benefits from the State of Texas under the Texas Hazlewood Act. For Veterans who meet eligibility criteria, portions of the GI Bill and Hazlewood Act education benefits may be available to be passed on to the Veteran’s dependents.
Education benefits are also available from private industries, trade unions, nonprofit organizations, the VA, and the Texas Veterans Commission.
Training and mentor programs are available to Veterans interested in starting their own business.
The Veterans Center of North Texas fully understands the edibility requirements for these educational programs and can help you decide on the best program to meet your educational needs.
