Congressman Steny Hoyer is proud to represent thousands of service members, veterans, and military families, and he believes in honoring the service of these brave men and women and in keeping faith with them when they return home.
Congressman Hoyer is focused on improving health care for veterans and ensuring they receive the benefits the have earned in a timely manner and with fewer errors. He has strengthened veterans' care by expanding mental health services, increasing access to health care in rural areas, and improving care for over 2 million female veterans. He also fought to pass the 21st Century GI Bill, which funds four years of higher education for all of our veterans who have served actively since 9/11, which means college opportunities for over 2 million veterans.
Additionally, Congressman Hoyer is working to end homelessness among veterans, securing grant funding to support veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and has worked to improve veterans' services in Maryland communities by working with federal, state, and local stakeholders to build a new, ADA accessible Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Charlotte Hall and to open another clinic closer to Patuxent River Naval Air Station.
Maryland's veterans have stood up for our country and Congressman Hoyer will continue to stand up for them.
