Los fondos para estas subvenciones se generan principalmente a través de los juegos de la Comisión de Lotería de Texas designados para el apoyo de los veteranos. Otras fuentes de financiación para las subvenciones provienen de opciones de donación individual para licencias de conducir, licencias para portar armas, licencias de recreación al aire libre para caza y pesca, y registros de vehículos.

Ayudar a los veteranos comienza aquí. La Comisión de Veteranos de Texas aboga y brinda un servicio superior a los veteranos que mejorará significativamente la calidad de vida de todos los veteranos de Texas, sus familias y los sobrevivientes. TVC ayuda a los veteranos a recibir sus beneficios, proporciona fondos a agencias que brindan servicios directos a los veteranos y administra los beneficios educativos de la Ley Hazlewood.
