HR Veterans Office Able To Offer More With Measure 96 Funds

Thanks to Measure 96 approved by Oregon voters last November, the Hood River County Veterans Service Office has more hours available to work with veterans seeking to file claims.  Measure 96 dedicates 1.5% of net proceeds from the Oregon Lottery to funding support services for military veterans.  Hood River County Veterans Service Officer Tricia Stevens says with the new funding her position went to full-time this week, plus there is now a part-time outreach coordinator and a receptionist.  The Hood River County Veterans Service Office is at the County Administration Building on 601 State Street, and is open Monday through Wednesday to service veterans between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.  There is also an outreach event for older veterans planned for September 28 at 1:30 p.m. at Parkhurst House retirement and assisted living facility.
