Veteran County Service Officers are eligible to submit one application for any of the service categories and must serve as the project coordinator for the services if awarded a grant. The VCSO applicants shall consider the notes listed for each grant category while developing their grant application.

    1. Supplanting of salaries or compensation for part-time or full-time county employees is not allowable.
    2. FVA grant funding cannot be used to support disability claims processing, filing, appeals processing, or any other activity associated with claims such as 2nd Claims services and support are provided by a separate TVC Department.
    3. Medical expenses are not allowed. Medical expenses include physician bills, prescription medications, medical insurance premiums or copays, audiology, vision care, emergency/after-hours clinic costs, lab work, imagery, and prescribed prosthetics.
