Hoosier officials approve a new set of rules designed to rein in the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
This move comes after a state audit revealed the agency had given more than $40,000 in grant money intended for struggling veteran to its own employees.
The department is now required to get approval from the state commission for any grant over $2,500. In the past, the department director had the authority to approve any grants.
The new rules also establish income eligibility standards based on federal poverty guidelines.
