BISMARCK The Administrative Committee on Veterans Affairs has donated $5,000 to HeartSprings Community Healing Center, a Fargo-based nonprofit organization, for research and development of a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder treatment facility in North Dakota.
The committee hopes for HeartSprings to provide services to complement and assist the services provided at the federal Veterans Affairs health care centers.
ACOVA oversees the expenditures of the Post-War Trust Fund interest earnings, legislative laws concerning veterans, N.D. Department of Veterans Affairs and the governing board of the Veterans Home. The committee is comprised of 15 voting members, each appointed by the governor, representing the five major veteran organizations in the state. The committee is also comprised of three nonvoting members who are to serve in an advisory capacity: the N.D. adjutant general, the center director of the federal Veterans Affairs, and the executive director of Job Service North Dakota.
