Background and Discussion:

On August 27, 2019, Harris County Commissioners Court approved the recommendations of a Veteran advisory group, which included an increase in budget to grow staff, improve the functionality and effectiveness to better serve the 200,000+ Veterans and their families in Harris County.

In continuing to reorganize the Veteran Services Department moving forward, we will accept control of the TVC Grant from CSD on July 1, 2021. In this new chapter, we will transfer one employee from CSD with the grant; however, the other grant employee will stay with CSD. Therefore, we respectfully request approval to create a new Clerk II position in support of the TVC Grant, which supports two full-time positions. This move will help continue our efforts in building a first-class Veteran Services Department to serve Harris County Veterans and families.
