California public libraries, in partnership with California Department of Veterans Affairs, are working to connect veterans and their families to benefits and services for which they are eligible. Libraries, in collaboration with community veteran service organizations, can positively impact the quality of life for veterans.
Veterans Connect @ the Library is gathering information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) to help veterans find the information and help they need in these difficult times. This content is being updated regularly.
Be sure to take a look at the Veterans Fact Sheet to share important information about the 2020 Census and veterans. Census data helps veterans, their families and their communities by shaping the equitability of many government and community programs. The 2020 Census will help decide how billions of dollars of funding for programs reach our families. Your answers will help determine funding for dozens of programs that provide essential resources to Californians.
