The Summit County Veterans Service Commission serves the Veterans and eligible family members according to Ohio Revised Code Section 5901.
The Summit County Veterans Service Commission (SCVSC) is led by Executive Director, Larry Moore, and is governed by five Commissioners who are nominated by their respective Veterans Service Organizations (VSO), and confirmed by the Summit County Court of Common Pleas.
Veterans Service Commissions are not funded by state or federal funding. They are funded by a percentage of real estate tax revenues that are generated within their respective counties.
