A Message from Congressman Schweikert
Arizona is home to so many men and women who have fought to protect our freedoms. During this global pandemic, we want you to be aware of the resources available to you from the Deparment of Veterans Affairs, and how our office can help you. I helped pass the CARES Act which provided $17.2 billion for the Veterans Health Administration to hire new staff and make sure existing personnel have the resources they need to combat COVID-19. The funding has also been used to add beds and purchase needed supplies such as ventilators, pharmaceuticals, and personal protective equipment.
If you are a Veteran and need assistance during this difficult time, please don't hesitate to reach out to our office. (480) 946-2411.
