Texas Veterans Commission grant to help veterans

The Texas Veterans Commission awarded a $95,000 grant to the Texas Legal Services Center (TLSC) to expand its Veterans Legal Hotline for Texas veterans who do not have access to civil legal services. The grant will allow TLSC to increase hotline hours and hire additional staff. Legal services provided to veterans primarily address issues relating to family, employment, housing, consumer, probate, and access to health care and benefits.
