About Our Grants:
Our grant program is something that we take very seriously. We understand that at times financial obstacles can become quite daunting. We also understand that at times, just paying our bills isn’t enough. Our grant program is designed to be robust and meet the varying needs of our veterans. Our grants may be used for paying bills, school books, to attend a school, or pay medical bills. We do not have a specific criteria for which it must be used. What we require is that grant be used to assist the veteran and their family in a healthy and successful transition.
All of our grants are considered on a case-by-case basis, by our Board of Directors, with special consideration given to veterans and their families in the following circumstance:
- Purple Heart
- Combat Stress
