Incarcerated Veterans Program
Administered by the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS), the Incarcerated Veterans Program is designed to address the readjustment and reentry needs of Veterans returning to society following a period of time in military service.
The goal of the program is to:
- Help incarcerated Veterans become aware of their entitlements and benefits and available community resources.
- Assist them in verifying their Veteran status.
- Provide counseling to address service related problems.
- Provide access to Veterans service providers in the community.
