WASHINGTON As of 4/1/96 the Veterans Relief fund has expended $624 for gas and bus fare for 11.r, hospital appointments in Spokane. If this rate continues the year end usage would be $2496. We can get a van set up to run,.Grant, Douglas, Adams and Lincoln counties. Grant County's share of the cost would be $2000. This will save:the county $496 in this first year alone. The van would be used for 3 years before being replaced so the county would save a total of $5488 to be used for other things for the veterans in need. Once the van is in place, the V.A. in Spokane would take care of maintenance, fuel, insurance and any other expenses that might occur: The vet sector would supply the drivers. This will be very important for the county to act on. Rumor has it in the service organizations that the V.A. may -cut all travel expense reimbursement in the future. If this happens the relief fund expenditures could as much as triple. This way for $2000 the county would b- Davina a large sum of monies for more immediate needs of the veterans of Grant County. An excellent investment in a progressive move for the future. Tim, I would appreciate any help you can give me here. Either via the veterans relief fund or application to any grant,fund the county may have access to for the $2000.' Jerrel W.
