Hi, this is Representative Deb Andraca with this week’s Democratic Radio Address.

This past session, it was an honor for me to serve on Governor Ever’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Veteran Opportunity. Made up of advocates for veterans, leaders in the military community, and most importantly, veterans and their families, this commission allowed folks to share their lived experiences and input to find real solutions to help and support Wisconsin veterans.

Based on our recommendations from the commission, Governor Evers has kickstarted a veterans rental assistance program to address veteran housing insecurity and homelessness. The last thing our veterans should have to worry about is whether they can afford to keep a roof over their heads at night.

We must keep working to ensure our veterans have access to affordable housing, mental health services, and the education and skills training they need to be successful when they return to civilian life. We’re proud these funds are on their way to support our dedicated service men and women across the state.
