The New York State Veterans App is designed to connect users with information about federal and state benefits, help them find a job, or locate housing.

Republican State Senator Kathy Marchione commended the New York State Division of Veterans’ Affairs for developing the free mobile app.

Democratic Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, an army veteran, said connecting veterans with services has been a main topic of conversation in Albany.

The app is available on Android and iOS devices.
