CMR. Bush announces launch of new Texas Veterans Land Board website
AUSTIN - On the Fourth of July, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush announced the launch of the new Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB) website. The redesigned website allows the VLB to efficiently and effectively serve Texas Veterans and their families by placing information only a click away.
The redesigned website offers quick access to essential information for Veterans who wish to access benefits offered by the VLB. The website also features a new calendar function, allowing individuals to locate events that are ongoing at the Texas State Veterans Homes and Texas State Veteran Cemeteries, in addition to Veterans events where a VLB representative will be present to assist Veterans, Military Members and their families. Further, the website is fully responsive and provides more information regarding programs and services available to our Veterans than ever before.
Commissioner Bush is committed to making government more efficient and bringing new ideas and technology to the General Land Office. As technology continues to evolve, so must the way in which we communicate with our Veterans.
“As Texas Land Commissioner, nothing is more important to me than fighting for our Veterans,” said Commissioner Bush. “That’s why the GLO and VLB have led the way in increasing and streamlining Veteran services. From buying a home to building retirement homes, our office is working every day to honor those who have honored us with their service. The redesigned website provides increased functionality and ties together information regarding all of the services that the VLB has to offer, furthering our mission of taking care of Texas Veterans.”
The VLB website will be updated on a regular basis with new events, blog posts, activities, and information. Visitors are encouraged to explore the redesigned website and sign up for the latest updates from the Veterans Land Board. To learn more about the VLB, visit https://vlb.texas.gov/ .
In the early days of the Texas Republic, land was awarded for military service during the Texas Revolution. In 1946, this tradition was formally recognized with the creation of the Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB) to administer benefits exclusively for Texas Veterans. Today, the VLB continues to expand the programs and services available to Texas Veterans, Military Members, and their families. The VLB offers land, home, and home improvement loans; nine long-term care facilities; four Texas State Veterans Cemeteries; the Voices of Veterans Oral History Program and a Statewide Veterans Call Service Center.
