Veteran Resources

Veterans Affairs at The University of Illinois Springfield is dedicated to assisting veterans in taking full advantage of educational benefits.

Launched in 2011, Make the Connection connects Veterans, their family members and friends, and other advocates with mental health information, local resources and inspiring stories of recovery.  It provides reliable information on how to cope with challenges such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury, military sexual trauma, and transitioning from service.

Free Grants for Veterans helps low income veterans find grants to help with rent, housing, education, medical bills, and utility bills.
