PostSubject: Flood Grants Available for Veterans   Sat Oct 16, 2010 7:34 am

By: Dan Meyer

The office hours for the Big Stone County Veterans Service Office are 7:30 am – 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. My office phone number is (320) 839-6398.

I want to say a “BZ” (a job well done) to all the residence of Big Stone County, especially to the veterans and their families. I will have served as your CVSO one year on November 2nd and to say the least it has been a great year. We have just got started in making the Big Stone County Veterans Service Office the best in the State of Minnesota. With your help we are going to make it happen!!!!

In my article due out on November 9th, I will be providing statistics with respect to the progress of the office. I think you will find these statistics to be awesome!

In other news. Flood Relief Grants Available for Veterans and Families.

As a result of severe flooding in parts of the state, the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) is offering Flood Relief Grants for reimbursable expenses to Veterans in approximately 35 Minnesota counties.

Affected counties include Blue Earth, Brown, Carver, Chippewa, Cottonwood, Dakota, Dodge, Faribault, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Jackson, Lac Qui Parle, Le Sueur, Lincoln, Lyon, Martin, Mower, Murray, Nicollet, Nobles, Olmsted, Pipestone, Ramsey, Rice, Rock, Scott, Sibley, Steele, Wabasha, Waseca, Watonwan, Winona and Yellow Medicine. The most severe damage is focused on Blue Earth, Goodhue, Martin, Olmsted, Rice, Steele and Wabasha counties.

Veterans, their families and surviving spouses may be eligible for reimbursement assistance funds of up to $750 if they have not received FEMA or other assistance.

Veterans and their families should contact their local County Veterans Service Officer (CVSO) for more information on this program or to request a Flood Relief Grant. For CVSO contact information, visit www.minnesotaveteran.org or call 1-888-LINKVET (546-5838).

All eligible applications and copies of receipts must be dated between disaster timeframe, as designated by the Governor and/or FEMA. Applications must be postmarked by December 31, 2010.

Until next week, take care and “Fair Winds and Following Seas!”
