The bill establishes the mobile veteran support unit grant program (grant program) to provide one-time grants to nonprofit organizations to establish mobile veteran support units. A mobile veteran support unit acts as an initial point of contact for veterans to obtain health and well-being services, including mental health services, dental health services, telehealth services, military benefit assistance, and housing assistance.
The department of public health and environment (department) administers the grant program. The department must consult with the Colorado board of veterans affairs when adopting grant program rules.
