The Nevada County Veterans Services Office’s mission is to connect every veteran within our community with his or her federal, state, and local benefits that they are entitled to. Most often, our office is the first point of contact for veterans or their surviving spouses when they begin to inquire about the benefits that are entitled to them. Our office is meant to be a welcoming place for all veterans as they begin the complicated process of accessing their VA benefits.On August 10, 2022, President Biden signed the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act of 2022 into public law, or what has become better known as the PACT Act. The PACT Act is the most extensive piece of legislation to impact the lives of our nation's veterans in generations. If you are a veteran or surviving spouse, the PACT Act may give you access to VA benefits that were previously unavailable, and our Veterans Services Office can assist you in getting the benefits you are entitled to. It has entitled veterans to their benefits from our country's most recent conflicts to the Vietnam era, including those who served at Camp Lejeune and were exposed to atomic testing during their service.
