CCVIP News and Updates


Message from the President

A message to our supporters from the Carroll County Veterans Independence Project Board of Directors.

Regards To All:

If you have not already heard, the Federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has not approved our application (2nd attempt) to obtain the former USAR building located at 404 Malcolm Drive here in Westminster to establish a Veterans Services Center. 

Following several meetings with County staff and coordination with the Federal General Services Administration and HHS staff the CCVIP Board has voted not to pursue a third attempt to obtain the building from the Federal government.

This is not an end to CCVIP but a new beginning and a refocusing of our efforts to establish a Veterans Services Center here in Carroll County.  CCVIP is pursuing other properties and locations throughout the Westminster area. 

We will continue to work with our County partners to insure an integrated approach in serving our veterans and their family members.  We will continue to keep you informed of our progress and as always thank you for your support of this important initiative.
