Do YOU want to support VETERANS? It’s as simple as checking YES!
In 2013, the 83rd Texas legislature passed House Bill 633, authored by Representative Joe Farias. This bill allows Texans to make donations to the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA) when applying for or renewing a driver license or identification card at DPS driver license offices. Contributions made through this donation feature will help to support Texas Veterans and their families.
The donation option is available to customers who apply in-person at a DPS driver license office and during online transactions. Customers can only make donations when applying for an original or renewal driver license/identification card – not during other transactions such as changes of address or card replacements.
In 2015, the 84th Texas legislature passed House Bill 3710, authored by Representatives César Blanco. This bill added an option for individuals applying for or renewing a Concealed Handgun License to make a voluntary contribution to the FVA, similar to the option already available for Texas driver licenses.
