Veteran Treatment Court Coordination Act of 2019

We are proud to inform you that President Trump signed H.R. 886 – Veteran Treatment Court Coordination Act of 2019 on August 8, 2020.  This will provide approximately $20 million dollars to the VA and Homeland Security to help over 600 Veterans Courts throughout the country.
Not sure about the details but we a excited that our President and Congress recognize the need.  The Act mentions the Country has over 600 Veterans Courts in the Country.  Note: Justice for Vets has trained over 250 Veterans Treatment Courts, so there are many others who do not use Justice for Vets program.
When we (Knoxville Regional Veterans Mental Health Council and Vet to Vet Tennessee) started in 2013 there were less than a hundred VTCs and only 83 VTC trained mentors.  Thanks for all of your support and prayers.
