Veterans Advisory Board

Veterans Advisory Board

The Veterans Advisory Board oversees the Clark County Veteran's Assistance Fund, which provides emergency relief to qualified veterans. The board consists of representatives from nationally recognized veterans organizations in Clark County and veterans from the community. The majority of the members must be representatives of service organizations, however, veterans may join as members at large if approved by a vote of the board. Service organizations and members at large must renew their Letter of Intent each October.
