Welcome to the Commission on Veteran Affairs Website!

The Commission is responsible for the management of a program which provides emergency assistance to eligible veterans and their families including temporary shelter costs, utility payments, food, and health supplies.

Veteran Affairs assists with funeral expenses to those veterans and their families who are eligible; provides complimentary flags and grave markers for Polk County citizens; and maintains veterans' graves in cooperation with the Des Moines Parks Department.

This Commission also acts as the local referral agency for elderly and/or disabled veterans and spouses who are seeking application/admission to the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown.

Assistance to military veterans and their families to meet basic needs, funeral expenses, filing claims, and possible placement at the Iowa Veterans Homes in Marshalltown is available.
