Hartford — The State Department of Veterans’ Affairs has partnered with Veterans Advantage, Inc. on an initiative to extend private sector benefits to veterans and their families who live in Connecticut through the VetRewards Card program.
The program provides special offers and discounts on services through a network of retailers and service providers. The program’s fees go toward a statewide scholarship program that will be awarded by the state Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
“The Veterans Advantage card is a way for private sector companies to extend their appreciation for our country’s troops by providing discounts on services while at the same time creating opportunities for military families to pursue higher education,” Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said.
Veterans Advantage is a national program that partners with private corporations that want to honor and thank all who serve in the military. To enroll, visit www.ct.gov/ctva to receive a discount on the program’s fees.
