The King County Veterans Program removes barriers and provides services that deliver the most equitable opportunities for empowering veterans, servicemembers and their families to achieve their greatest potential.

Visiting KCVP

The King County Veterans Program (KCVP) works with partners across the region to provide financial, housing, employment and other supportive services to veterans, servicemembers and their families throughout King County.

Visit one of our two locations during walk-in hours to meet with a social service professional. Through a collaborative case management process, your assigned social service professional will help determine the type and levels of services and resources for which you may be eligible.

Eligibility

To be eligible for services or resources, you must be a veteran (served at least one day in the military, any discharge type), servicemember, or respective family member living in King County. Some services are income dependent. When you visit a King County Veterans Program office, bring your ID, proof of service and proof of income.
