How do I apply for admission to the Veterans Home?

There are four Veterans Homes in Nebraska:

  • Grand Island
  • Norfolk
  • Omaha
  • Scottsbluff

To qualify for admission, a veteran must have an honorable discharge and at least two years of residency within the state of Nebraska. The application process includes submission of current medical information and current financial information. The applicant is required to pay a co-payment, which is based upon assets and income. Application forms are available from the County Veterans Service Officer.
