Mobile Veterans-support Unit Grant Program
The act establishes a mobile veterans-support unit grant program (grant program) to provide grant funding to a veteran-owned-and-focused organization to create a mobile veterans-support unit. A mobile veterans-support unit acts as a point of contact to veterans in rural areas or to veterans experiencing homelessness, regardless of the veteran's discharge status. The mobile veterans-support unit transports veterans who do not have access to public or private transportation. The act requires the mobile veterans-support unit to make every effort to ensure the vehicle is compliant with the federal "Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990".
The division of local government (division), created as a division of the department of local affairs, shall establish and administer the grant program.
For the 2021-22 state fiscal year, $229,070 is appropriated from the general fund and an additional 0.6 FTE is provided to the division to implement the act.
