Property Tax Exemption for Disabled Veterans
The guidelines for property tax exemption for disabled veterans are set forth by the State Comptroller, but are administered by each County Appraisal District. Administration of rules and can vary considerably by county.
Military Veteran Peer Network
Sometimes, people need a hand in slowing the internal disquiet
and conflict that combat, deployment, military sexual trauma, or other abnormal
situations produce. No one is better prepared to speak with a Veteran
about her experiences than another Veteran, a peer.
With the peer-to-peer network, veterans go through a training course that teaches them how to facilitate groups of veterans. Once trained, they are tasked with going out into their local communities and creating peer groups. Because members of the group set the rules, no two peer groups are the same.
