  • Veterans Resource List: Billings Metro VISTA Project coordinated with service providers to create a Veterans Resource List to connect veterans with local services.
  • A collaborative effort between Billings TrailNet and the Veterans Treatment Court provides bicycles to veterans enrolled in the Treatment Court after they attend three classes. The classes teach proper bicycle-driver etiquette, basic mechanic skills, and route planning. Once the veteran has attended the classes, they are loaned a refurbished bicycle, a new helmet, lights, and a lock until they no longer need it or they graduate from the Treatment Court.
