Organization Information

Mission Statement

MVAA, housed within DMVA, is the central coordinating agency for the state, providing support, care, advocacy, and service to veterans and their families

Description

The MVAA provides support, care, advocacy, and service to veterans of all eras. The MVAA is responsible for administration and operation of the Michigan Veteran Resource Service Center, a 24/7/365 call center (1-800-MICH-VET) in partnership with Michigan 211; the Michigan Veterans Trust Fund, which provides short-term emergency relief to eligible veterans; and the state’s grant to chartered veterans service organizations and the Michigan Association of County Veterans Counselors.

The MVAA assists veterans and their families by connecting them to their federal and state resources and benefits. The agency does this by working with various state departments and agencies, as well as hundreds of community-based veteran programs to create a no-wrong-door access to benefits and services. The MVAA embraces the belief that those who serve our state and nation in the armed forces are considered members for life. This means our commitment to these brave men and women start the day they take their oath, providing them with comprehensive support after their service, ensuring their long-term care needs are met with dignity and their loved ones are supported in their time of need.
