New information portals rolled out by state
If you’re a veteran residing in the state of Michigan — and according to the state, that number totals nearly 700,000 — announcements made recently by the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs will be important to you.
The department has launched four new websites. They include: Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency, Michigan Veteran Homes and Michigan Youth Challenge Academy.
Here are the on addresses: www.michigan.gov/DMVA, www.michigan.gov/MVAA, www.michigan. gov/MVH and www.michigan. gov/MYCA.
This launch is the result of a multi-year statewide website content management replacement project to update and replace over 110 executive branch websites.
The goal is simple, to streamline information to veterans and ultimately make obtaining services easier, a top department official said in a press release.
“Our websites provide valuable information and services to our service members, employees, stakeholders and the communities we serve. That is why it was imperative that we remove and prevent barriers to accessibility while improving site navigation to key services so that all visitors will have a positive experience when interacting with our websites,” said U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul D. Rogers, adjutant general and director of the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.
We recommend veterans and their loved ones make a note of the new addresses online. It could be the first step in obtaining services you need.
