Chapter 115 of the Massachusetts General laws dates back to 1861 and the Civil War, and to related laws and regulations which established the Massachusetts Department of Veterans' Services to oversee state mandated municipal departments of veterans' services tasked with providing benefits to Massachusetts Veterans in need.
Local veterans' services provided for by state law are maintained in each of the 351 cities and towns of the Commonwealth for the sole purpose of assisting veterans and their dependents in receiving federal, state, and local benefits. These benefits are made available by the Commonwealth and its' taxpayers, as well as by the U.S. Government. In some cases, local communities offer benefits usually in the form of tax abatements or matching grants. Not all towns have local benefits, but all towns are required to provide benefits based on need.
