Vets.RI.Gov: One-Stop-Shopping for RI Veterans

Rhode Island has unveiled a new, one-stop-shopping web site for veterans.

The new site brings together links and information about the range of services Rhode Island and the federal government offer veterans. From the home page, veterans can find links to Rhode Island college tuition programs, sign up for state and federal benefits, and even locate a service member’s grave.

Rhode Island’s Division of Veterans Affairs said in statement that the idea was to make it easier for vets and their families to connect with the wide and sometimes complicated range of services available to them.

The division says Rhode Island is home to nearly 74,000 veterans and that it spends almost $400 million dollars on their benefits.
