Veterans Services

The County Veterans Service Office (CVSO) serves all veterans and their dependents, helping to present and pursue any claim against the Department of Veterans Affairs. Every effort is made to establish the right of veterans and dependents to any privilege, preference, care or compensation provided by the Federal or State government.

The Napa County Veterans Service Office provides assistance with completion of claims forms, obtaining documents and other evidence necessary to support claims and preparation of appeals of adverse decisions. Information about and referral to other service providers and programs is also provided.

Veterans Orientations

We conduct an orientation to veterans services on the second Tuesday of each month at 1 p.m. The one-hour program, held at 650 Imperial Way, covers the major benefit programs from the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs (“The VA”), the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) and local programs as well. Following the orientation attendees can make appointments to meet with a veterans representative to discuss issues and apply for benefits. For reservations, please call 707-253-4558

College Tuition Waivers

Attention: Children of disabled vets may qualify for college tuition waivers.

Children of veterans with a disability that is service-connected may qualify for waiver of tuition and some fees at any California community college, state college or University of California. This benefit is estimated to be worth $1,080 at a community college, $6,018 at a state college and $11,124 at a University of California school.

Vet Connect

We feature a monthly program called Vet Connect with more than a dozen organizations or businesses that attend, providing information on available benefits and services, including VA health care, the Veterans Home at Yountville, legal assistance, Napa Valley College, home health care and more. We even offer free coffee and doughnuts, thanks to the local Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA Post 702). Vet Connect is held the second Thursday of each month from 9am to noon in the 1st floor conference room at 650 Imperial Way, Napa CA 94559. Reservations are not required.
