The County Veterans Coalition (CVC) is a coalition of county
veteran program administrators ad veteran advocates in Washington State who
are collectively assessing and addressing the evolving needs of indigent
veterans. CVC does not provide direct services to veterans, instead CVC works
with counties to enhance their ability to provide services to veterans and
The 2005 passage of Senate and House Bill 1189 -- providing relief for indigent
veterans and their families -- puts many veteran "best practice" programs on
solid footing and enables the rest to move in a direction where county
resources permit. More importantly, each county is now able to design and
implement programs or services tailored to meet the emerging needs of veterans.
CVC continues working with counties to enhance service
delivery to indigent veterans. This web site serves as a tool
to assist CVC participants in accomplishing this goal.
