The Welcome Home Bonus is offered to qualifying district veterans who serve on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces. The bonus is valued at $500 for active service and $1000 for service in a designated combat area. Applicants are also eligible for multiple bonuses for multiple tours of duties.
This data is important for our district as it represents the portion of our job dedicated to referring veterans to federal and state programs and assisting with the application process. We are currently compiling data on federal and state benefits paid to district veterans and will make it available on this space as the reports become published.
