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.

The FVA does not grant funds directly to Veterans. Veterans in need of assistance are asked to visit the Grants Awarded page to find organizations in their area, for information on receiving assistance.
