Veterans Services

City of Somerville FY21 Budget

Mission Statement

The Somerville Department of Veterans’ Services honors the service and sacrifice of veterans through advocacy, services and engagement. The Department strives to take a “Veterans Come First” approach to all services by taking the time to engage with Somerville’s veterans, learn their concerns, and work to improve their lives and our responsiveness in meeting their needs.

Changes from FY20

There are no substantive changes to Personal Services in the department for FY21.


A 4.4% reduction in Ordinary Maintenance is due primarily to a reduction in Professional & Technical Services as some annual events have been cancelled for the summer of 2020. Small reductions in Materials budgets have also been made.
