Veterans Services

Hillsborough County’s Veterans Services assists all Veterans, their dependents, and survivors in accessing federal, state, and local benefits. Staff also supports and manages Veterans activities in the County, including events at Veterans Memorial Park and Museum. The department acts as a single point of contact for military members and their families seeking assistance with outside agencies, and there is never a fee to receive services or visit with any of our qualified Veterans Service Officers. Staff also provides outreach and support to Veterans in assisted-living facilities, nursing homes, private residences, and private businesses.
