HB 370 – No Veteran Left Behind

Primary House Sponsors: Rep. John Bell, IV (R-Greene, Johnston, Wayne); Rep. Tim Moore (R-Cleveland); Rep. George Cleveland (R-Onslow); Rep. Charles Miller (R-Brunswick, New Hanover)


This bill appropriates $500K to The Independence Fund, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of veterans and their families, in nonrecurring funds for the 2021-2022 fiscal year to establish a pilot program to expand the Veterans Justice Intervention program.

The program must, in part, educate first responders, local community support employees, and others on veteran-specific crisis intervention, suicide prevention, and available VA resources.
