The new Mass Vets Advisor website is designed to connect Massachusetts veterans with more than 200 different state and federal programs, including housing, counseling, education, employment, financial assistance and health care. Massachusetts veterans are also eligible for a $1,000 Welcome Home Bonus after their first deployment in either Iraq or Afghanistan, and $500 for each subsequent deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan. The bonus is awarded tax free, and there is no time restriction by which veterans must apply to receive the bonus. For more information on veterans benefits available to Massachusetts veterans, visit the My Army Benefits webpage.
