Missouri has launched a new tool to help veterans find potential benefits and local help.
The Missouri Benefits and Resource Portal is an informational tool and service guide to help veterans. The Missouri Veterans Commission and Office of the Missouri Military Advocate have rolled out the portal.
A state press release says the effort is a one-stop-shop for veteran resources that began after a University of Central Missouri research project commissioned by the Office of the Missouri Military Advocate. The project resulted in the recommendation of a centralized website to help improve the quality of life for military service members and their families.
The portal can be found at veteranbenefits.mo.gov.
