While federal benefits include health care, education, home loans, and vocational rehabilitation, Maryland provides additional benefits, such as educational grants and scholarships, reduced fees and tax credits, business loans, veterans homes, and hunting and fishing privileges. Also, through the Maryland Veterans Trust Fund, the Maryland Veterans Trust provides monetary and other assistance to both veterans and their families, and to programs that support them. Moreover, as part of the Maryland Higher Education Commission, Veterans Affairs promotes and safeguards quality education and training programs for all veterans.

Concerns about veterans affairs also are addressed by the General Assembly through the Senate Education, Health and Environmental Affairs Committee, and the Maryland Veterans Caucus.
