The FIA program has also expanded to include the sampling of urban trees on all land use types in select cities.

    Veterans' Home Purchase Board

    The Veterans' Home Purchase Board (VHPB) was established by an Act of the Mississippi State legislature to provide a benefit in the form of a mortgage loan to Mississippi veterans in appreciation for their service to our country. Providing affordable interest rates and utilizing VA mortgage financing enables the VHPB to provide affordable home ownership opportunities and improve quality of life for many Mississippi veterans. With our advantageous interest rates, the VHPB is able to assist many veterans who would not normally qualify for another mortgage loan.

    Mississippi Commission for Volunteer Service

    The mission of the Mississippi Commission for Volunteer Service is to engage and support Mississippians of all ages and backgrounds in service to their communities. The Mississippi Commission for Volunteer service began with a small staff and a big dream: to make good things happen for Mississippi through the power of volunteers.

    Since 1994 when it was established to promote community service and volunteerism to help meet local needs more effectively, the Mississippi Commission for Volunteer Service had brought new resources to the state's volunteers and volunteer organizations. We believe that volunteers are a powerful force for community improvement, whose efforts make the most of limited resources; the Commission seeks to involve Mississippians to make a difference in every community in the state.
