Central Texas Opportunities just received an extension from the Texas Veterans Commission to continue their services for another 6 months and received an additional $150,000.00 to go with the extension. They were out of funds up until they received the extension so they will be able to continue serving Veterans again. This is the program that will help veterans pay one-time utilities, with no income stipulation. Just get the form from City Hall (or me). Fill out only the personal information, enclose a copy of your 214, driver’s license, and the bill. If you need help, just come and see me. Thank you all for using this program, and keep using it so our veterans in this area will keep getting the services. What a wonderful program for us all. For more information, contact Sandra at the Veterans Service Office at 602 Strong Ave on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 3pm, or call 365-3612.
