Coordinating Funding to Support Veterans and their Families Across Texas

The Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA) grant program awards reimbursement grants to eligible charitable organizations, local government agencies, and Veterans Service Organizations that provide direct services to Texas Veterans and their families.

About the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance

The Fund for Veterans’ Assistance (FVA or Fund) was created in the 79th Legislature to address the needs of Texas veterans and their families. The Fund is composed of money deposited under the Texas Government Code, the Texas Transportation Code, and Texas Parks and Wildlife Code.

The Commission is authorized to use funds appropriated to the Fund to make reimbursement grants addressing the needs of Texas veterans and their families, as determined through veteran needs assessment studies. All grant awards are made through a competitive grant selection process:

  1. The FVA Advisory Committee reviews all eligible grant applications and makes award recommendations to the Commission.
  2. The Commission awards reimbursement grants.

Awards decisions by the Commission are final. Once grant awards are determined by the Commission, grants are administered by the staff of the Fund for Veterans’ Assistance. Through the Fund, the Commission has awarded over $313 Million Dollars in more than 1,400 reimbursement grants since 2009.
