- The California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) works closely with local communities in a joint effort to serve our state’s veterans. To ensure veterans receive the assistance, benefits, and services they need, CalVet divides California into eight regions and staffs each region with a Local Interagency Network Coordinator (LINC). Our LINCs play a dynamic role within local communities, serving as both informational conduits to the community and feedback resources for CalVet. LINCs bridge the gap between CalVet and the federal, state, county, and nongovernment agencies that provide services to our state’s 1.7 million veterans. Our LINCs are advocates for veterans, military service members, and their families within their regions. In addition, they supplement and support the County Veterans Service Offices (CVSO) and regional partners in the development of improved and expanded services and support for their local veteran populations and assist veterans with employment and educational opportunities.
- The California Transition Assistance Program (CalTAP) offers a full array of transition assistance to all veterans in the state (not only those who have recently exited the military). It is essential that veterans are connected to the state system of care as they progress in their lives and the needs of the veteran and family change
- Grizzly Youth Academy is structured as a “military boarding school,” providing structure and support 24/7 for youth who previously struggled in school due to academic and social problems. Working as individuals and in groups, cadets develop skills and habits to overcome obstacles that have held them back in the past, and learn to succeed.
