National Partnership for Reinventing Government

Dallas Veterans Get Hassle Free Service Center

February 23, 1999

A group of federal, state, and local agencies and community-based organizations are providing veterans services on a consolidated basis the second Tuesday of every month in Dallas.

The services are delivered from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the lobby of the VA Medical Center's Clinical Addition.

For example, veterans seeking employment will find the Texas Employment Commission ready to take applications, federal agencies currently hiring (such as the Census Bureau) ready to provide information about available federal jobs, and the City of Dallas ready to provide information about available city jobs. In addition, a government employee will help veterans electronically access available Federal USA Jobs or jobs available anywhere in the state of Texas! Veterans and Veteran's Affairs employees can access information on small business development and expansion, health care, benefits and claims filing, employment, training, transportation, assistance to families, taxes, housing and how to contact any other government services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Hassle-Free Pilots

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is one of three "Hassle-Free Community" pilot projects created by Vice President Gore's National Partnership for Reinventing Government. In each community, federal agencies cooperate with state and local government to develop seamless delivery of the most-wanted customer services. The other two pilots are in Kansas City and Seattle.
