VA Seeks Funds To Locate Veterans Eligible for Benefits
The state Department of Veterans Affairs is seeking funding to support an outreach program to find veterans who may qualify for benefits. VA has contact information for roughly 20,000 of California's two million veterans. VA officials plan to store veterans' contact information in a new database and link them with benefits, which could draw down millions in federal funds.
