Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) today announced that a new free mobile app, compatible with iOS and Android, is available for veterans and their family members to help them connect with important programs and resources. The New York State Veterans App provides users with information on healthcare, housing, education, employment and a host of other issues at the touch of a finger.

            “Our state is home to nearly one million veterans and helping them easily access vital programs and services is extremely important,” Hawley said. “Far too often, our veterans are not aware of the help available to them and are left without a strong support system. This announcement perfectly illustrates how government can better serve citizens through technology and how knowledge can be easily accessed by those who need it most. I look forward to using this app myself and informing my constituents on this break though in veterans’ affairs services.”

            Hawley is a veteran himself and serves as Ranking Republican Member of the Assembly’s Veterans Affairs Committee.
