SUMMARY OF REQUEST:
November 11, 2021, is nationally recognized as Veterans Day, an opportunity for us to recognize and show our appreciation, gratitude, and respect for the contributions and sacrifices veterans and their families have made for our Country. In honor of this holiday, the Mendocino County Social Services, Adult and Aging Services, Veterans Service Office is requesting that the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors proclaim November 11, 2021, as Veterans Appreciation Day in Mendocino County.

The Mendocino County Veterans Services Office (MCVSO) filed 1,398 compensation and pension claims in 2020, bringing in $4,401,094 in federal monies. Veterans Benefits which were awarded went directly to the veterans, helping to support our local economy. The MCVSO also received a onetime $10,000 grant under proposition 63, which allowed a contract to be established with a local psychologist to provide mental health services to veterans in the Mendocino County Coastal Area. Services provided under the contract included 28 assessment sessions, 1 Case management session, and 30 Therapeutic Recreation sessions, leading to a total of $24,731 in federal monies being awarded to participating veterans.

ALTERNATIVE ACTION/MOTION:
Return to staff for alternative handling.
