ABOUT the FUND AND SERVICES
In accordance with RCW 73.08.010 the county is required to establish a Veterans’ Assistance Program to address the needs of local indigent veterans and their families.
Here in Walla Walla County, this fund and programs are overseen by the Department of Community Health. Annually the fund brings in about $85,000 to $94,000. The revenue into this fund comes from local property taxes, you see this on your tax statement as SSF (Soldiers and Sailors). For more information on how the fund is overseen, go to our Veterans’ Relief Advisory Board page.
