My bill would require the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to partner with nongovernmental organizations to provide legal services specifically to female veterans. This partnership would focus on the 10 highest unmet needs of female veterans as described in the most recent Community Homelessness Assessment, Local Education and Networking Group for Veterans, or CHALENG for Veterans, survey.
The current survey lists as unmet needs: child care, dental care, legal assistance for eviction and mortgage foreclosure cases, child support and custody disputes, and legal assistance to help restore driver’s licenses.
