For Maryland veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs provides information and assistance so that veterans receive all the benefits they have earned. Federal benefits include health care, education, home loans, and vocational rehabilitation. Maryland provides additional benefits, such as educational grants and scholarships, reduced fees and tax credits, business loans, veterans homes, and hunting and fishing privileges.
In addition, the General Assembly addresses concerns about veterans affairs through the Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee.
