TexVet was created to integrate, facilitate, and coordinate information and referral, web-based resources, and evidenced-based treatment interventions on behalf of the Texas military community, their dependents, and service providers through the collaborative efforts of the Department of Defense (DoD), State of Texas, Veteran's Administration (VA), Texas National Guard (TNG), United States Army Reserve (USAR), and the business and academic communities. The objective of TexVet is to organize information about medical and social services and make it easily available to military personnel, their loved ones, and service providers.

The Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) is the advocate for Texas veterans, their families and their survivors. TVC leads in coordinating efforts of service providers, sharing of resources, providing innovative and effective training, and developing a partnership with other levels of government to achieve the highest quality of service in assisting the veterans, their families, and their survivors.

Texas Veterans Land Board (TVLB) has special loan programs for buying a home, land, or home improvement specifically to benefit the more than 1.7 million civilian Veterans in Texas, and those that want to reside in Texas when leaving active duty. Additionally the TVLB assists veterans with Foreclosure Relief, and the Housing Assistance Program (VHAP). These Texas veterans' loan programs are not associated with the federal VA; therefore, even if you have used your VA benefits, you may still be eligible for these state loan programs. In Texas, call toll-free at 1-800-252-VETS (8387) or out of state calls 1-512-463-5060 (long distance charges apply).

Texas Veterans Portal provides information collected from Federal and State agencies to bring together a comprehensive collection of links to provide you with the latest veteran's benefit information.

Vet Centers provide readjustment counseling and outreach services to all veterans who served in any combat zone. Services are also available for their family members for military related issues. Veterans have earned these benefits through their service and all are provided at no cost to the veteran or family. Vet Centers are staffed by small multi-disciplinary teams of dedicated providers, many of which are combat veterans themselves. Staff is available toll free during normal business hours at 1-800-905-4675 (Eastern) and 1-866-496-8838 (Pacific). To locate a Vet Center click here.

Education (Hazlewood Exemption) is to provide an education benefit to honorably discharged or separated Texas veterans and to eligible dependent children and spouses of Texas veterans.

The National Center for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) aims to help U.S. Veterans and others through research, education, and training on trauma and PTSD. It provides information about warning signs and treatment options for PTSD and other mental health conditions as well as information for the family about coping during deployment.
