U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp on Friday unveiled a website designed to connect Native American veterans to benefits and services they may qualify for.


The site is hosted on her Senate website and links to Web pages for several government programs.

At a Native Americans Veterans Summit held in Bismarck in June, Heitkamp promised to create a “one-stop shop” for Native American veterans information.

“It was very clear during my Native American Veterans Summit that many Native veterans face similar problems in getting access to resources about their benefits and services. After putting their lives on the line for each of us, they should not have any trouble getting the support they earned,” Heitkamp said in a news release.

The site includes contact information for health care providers, general information about veterans’ benefits, and links to services and programs for Native American veterans.
