The Boulder County Veterans Services Office develops and submits claims for benefits to the Department of Veterans Affairs for eligible veterans and their dependents.

Join us for Veterans Community Conversations!

Boulder County is home to an estimated 14,000 Veterans with varying needs including housing, mental and behavioral health supports, in-home care, and beyond. Boulder County’s Veterans Service Officers are bringing together residents and stakeholders to discuss how to best support those who served, their dependents, and survivors for our strategic planning process.
