Local Vets See Almost $1 Million From Grant

Westchester Community Opportunity Program helps low-income veterans

Hudson Valley Veterans just received some good news—and financial help.

The Westchester Community Opportunity Program (WestCOP) is slated to receive a renewal grant of $936,025. The money will be used to provide support services for 750 veteran households in the region.

The support services are aimed at helping low-income vets by providing health care, transportation, financial planning, child care services and more.

"We view this renewal grant as recognition of the work we do and the accomplishments we have made," said Winston Ross, Executive Director of WestCOP.  "We plan to continue to work in the Hudson Valley to help veterans and their families get the support they need."
