Name: Department of Veterans' Affairs - RG 224

Historical Note: The Department of Veterans' Affairs was created in 1975 to assist Illinois veterans in obtaining all of those federal and state benefits due them. To accomplish this goal the department was charged with contacting individual veterans or their surviving dependents and informing them of benefits and services available, establishing field offices staffed by paid employees and volunteers, conducting informational workshops, undertaking a publicity program, coordinating those services state agencies offer veterans, and cooperating with the various veterans' organizations in promoting benefits and services (P.A. 79-376, pp. 1388-1389). This department replaced the Illinois Veterans' Commission, RG 408.000.
