On March 29, the North Texas Veterans Funders Collaborative released a veterans needs assessment by the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), a bipartisan think tank based in Washington, D.C. The Collaborative includes the King Foundation and ten other local funders. According to the report, veterans face diverse challenges including access to VA services, economics, housing, and transportation issues, with many of these issues exacerbated by the region’s booming economy. The Collaborative also announced plans for VetConnectNTX, an easily searchable directory of programs serving veterans that have undergone careful review by volunteer teams lead by Collaborative members.
