Fund for Veterans’ Assistance

Coordinating Funding to Support Veterans and their Families Across Texas

The Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA) grant program awards reimbursement grants to eligible charitable organizations, local government agencies, and Veterans Service Organizations that provide direct services to Texas Veterans and their families.

Since 2009, the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance has administered over $168 million in grant funding. These organizations have helped more than 300,000 veterans and their families with grant funding from the Commission.
