There are numerous resources available to veterans and other military-affiliated groups in Massachusetts, but there are still unmet needs in the areas of education, employment, health care, housing, financial, and legal services. This interactive tool features data and information about state-level programs collected in support of a study of the needs and well-being of Massachusetts veterans and National Guard/reserve members. With multiple options to customize the visualizations and export the data, the tool promotes understanding of the unique needs of these populations, helping to inform investments in initiatives that target unmet needs and guide efforts to remedy barriers to accessing available support services and other resources.
