How is the Michigan Veterans Coalition funded?
There are 2 main sources of funding, the first being from each individual organizations membership. The second source of funding comes in the form of grants from the State of Michigan, budget. These grants were created from Senate Bill 250 which became Public Act 112 in 2009. The Act may be viewed here: PA 112
We work with the recently created Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency, who oversees the grant money and the work we do. The budget for these grants falls under the Department’s budget and the Military and Veterans Affairs Committees in the House and Senate.
County Veteran Service Offices
The Michigan Veterans Coalition has partnered with the Michigan Association of County Veterans Counselors helping to file and monitor the claims the counties submitted on behalf of the veterans.
