Veteran Assistance

We care about our veterans and want to serve those who have served our country. Our Veteran Assistance programs enable eligible veterans to maintain safe and secure housing through financial assistance and home modifications.

The Veteran Housing & General Assistance Program assists qualifying veterans and surviving spouses with maintaining secure housing and utility services within the fourteen counties served by Rolling Plains Management Corporation’s Community Services Program. Eligible applicants may receive assistance with rent, water, and energy utility costs. 

The Veteran Roofing Project provides roof repairs and minor home modification for eligible veterans’ homes within the twenty-eight counties served by Rolling Plains Management Corporation’s Weatherization Program.
