PCS Gets Grant Money

Veterans will be getting help to make home repairs and other emergency services through a grant from the Texas Veterans Commission.

The grant will help veterans living below the 80 percent median income with personal emergencies from dental care to rent and mortgage costs.

The breakdown of the two grants is 300,000 dollars for general assistance as well as increasing the grant for home repairs to 500,000 dollars.

The money will help veterans across the Panhandle’s 26 counties and is expected to cover 150 veterans.

For the past two years, the home repairs grant has helped 49 homes, and this year PCS is looking to add another 20.
