Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senator Jim Beach, Senator Dawn Addiego, Assemblyman Herb Conaway, Assemblyman Troy Singleton, Assemblywoman Maria Rodriguez-Gregg, officials running the Vets4Warriors program at Rutgers and the Burlington County Military Affairs Committee met on Wednesday to highlight the use of $8 million in special funding added to the state budget for veterans’ services, including money that will keep the Vets4Warriors program operating.

The Legislature and the governor worked together to fund the suicide prevention program operated by Rutgers when federal government announced it was going to discontinue its support by Friday. The special funding provides the money needed to keep Vets4Warriors operating and for other veterans’ services, including health care.

“For veterans struggling with the return to civilian life, having a strong and accessible peer support network can be the difference between life and death,” said Senator Addiego. “The Vets4Warriors program ensures that our returning heroes are never alone in their times of need.”
