TALLAHASSEE – The Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs (FDVA) is proud to announce enhancements to its free Mobile App, available to veterans and their families through the iPhone and Android Markets.  The app is a primary tool to advocate for the Sunshine State’s more than 1.5 million veterans.

  • the Locations feature allows veterans to view the closest VA Medical Centers, Outpatient Clinics and Vet Centers; it also provides veterans with one-click access to instant directions to the selected VA facility;
  • the Crisis tab reminds veterans we’re here to help and provides a phone number they can click to instantly dial the crisis line;
  • the Jobs feature connects veterans to many different employment and transition services, as well as a web-based job board; and,
  • the Services tab provides an overview of each type of service available to Florida veterans.

Additionally, the Mobile App provides easy access to the FDVA Benefits Guide and to an up-to-date list of veteran events throughout the state.
