The Texas Veterans Land Board is offering more help to Texas Vets. Jerry Patterson, the Chairman of the TVLB, has raised the loan limits for veterans that want to purchase a house or land. The new loan limit is $417K and a $100K land loan for tracts of 1 acre or more. The new combination will allow vets to buy land near cities and build homes on it. Many neighborhoods have acreage now so that people who want large tracts of land can continue to live in neighborhoods.
The innovative Watkins-Logan-Garrison Texas State Veterans Home in Tyler recently welcomed its first residents, who will no doubt be spoiled by the eager staff. It is not your traditional nursing home; it has 10 cottages, each containing 10 private rooms.
The state-of-the-art Tyler Veterans Home joins seven others across the state in Amarillo, Big Spring, Bonham, El Paso, Floresville, McAllen and Temple. But unlike previous Texas State Veterans Homes, this one focuses on drawing residents into social connection by mixing the best communal aspects of a home while still maintaining privacy and independence for residents.
