Texas State Veterans Homes provide affordable long-term care for Veterans, their spouses and Gold Star parents across the state. The VA subsidizes a generous amount of a Veteran's cost to reside in a VLB Texas State Veterans Home which allows for daily out-of-pocket rates, including medication, to be well below average for Veterans. As with all VLB programs, Texas State Veteran Homes are self-supporting and cost Texas taxpayers virtually nothing.
