Olympia – The Governor’s Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee (VAAC) is accepting grant proposals for veterans’ memorials in Washington State, beginning today, July 1. Applications must be postmarked no later than August 29, 2014 to be considered for this funding period.
Funding for accepted proposals comes from the Veterans Remembrance Emblem Fund. The fund – established in 1990 – is administered by the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs, in partnership with the Department of Licensing.
The Emblem Fund permits eligible veterans to purchase and display approved decals on their vehicle license plates through the Department of Licensing, with net fees being deposited in a special account held by the state treasurer.
