Emergency Financial Assistance
Information & Application  

The Foundation has an established program that supports our veterans in need during an emergency and partners with other organizations like the American Legion to help facilitate the process. 

We are an organization for veterans, by veterans and we understand that everyone needs help every once in a while. When life's unexpected bumps get in the way we are here for you, our service members, to help you get back on track. We offer a one-time benefit of financial assistance for rent, utilities, and other special request on a case-by-case basis. 


We are committed to doing what we can to support Florida’s active duty military members, veterans, and their families, but resources are limited. We are grateful for the Florida Legislature, private donations and grants that help to support these financial efforts that will help service members who are experiencing a hardship during this time. Our funds are not a loan. When we grant funds during a financial crisis there are no strings attached and we do not expect a return.
