Austin Hosts Veterans Need Assessment Town Hall Meetings

Staff Reports

The City of Austin will host two Town Hall meetings to discuss the Veteran Community Needs Assessment and to gather community input and feedback regarding location of services, services offered, organizations included, etc. that may be included in a future City of Austin Veteran Resource Center.   

In 2017, the City of Austin decided to move forward with the Veteran Resource Center, a one-stop shop for all of veterans and their family’s needs. The city has been looking for funding options and office space to make the center a reality. 

The City of Austin’s Veterans Services Office provides support for City employees who are in the National Guard and Reserve or are veterans, as well as their families. Support is provided before deployment, during deployment and during reintegration into the workplace.

City of Austin Veterans Services Office is a resource for individual employees, City departments and City management. It stays up-to-date on available veteran services both within the City and with other agencies.

The office offers training to City departments on federal legislation that addresses hiring, leave and benefits; monitors the health, welfare and morale of veterans in the City workforce; and works to ensure fair treatment for all service members and their families by all government agencies.
