Veteran Community Grant FAQs

PROGRAM AND ORGANIZATION ELIGIBILITY

MUST OUR ORGANIZATION BE FOUNDED BY OR LED BY A U.S. MILITARY VETERAN IN ORDER TO APPLY?

Yes. Each applicant organization must submit information about a veteran leader over the age of 21 who is closely associated with the organization. The veteran leader may be a founder, staff member, board member, or committed volunteer.

DO I NEED TO BE AFFILIATED WITH A NONPROFIT IN ORDER TO APPLY?

Yes, these grants can only be awarded to 501(c)(3) organizations.

WHAT TYPES OF PROJECTS WILL BE FUNDED?

Any program(s) designed to help veterans in your community in the categories of Basic Human Needs, Career & Education, Recreational Activities & the Arts, or Health & Well-being is eligible for funding.

ARE THERE ANY PROGRAMS THAT CANNOT RECEIVE FUNDING?

This grant does NOT fund addiction/recovery services or any services to people under the age of 21.

MY ORGANIZATION HAS MULTIPLE PROGRAMS. ONE OF OUR PROGRAMS SERVES PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 21 OR PROVIDES ADDICTION/RECOVERY SERVICES. CAN MY ORGANIZATION REQUEST FUNDING FOR A VETERAN-FOCUSED PROGRAM THAT DOES NOT SERVE PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 21 OR PROVIDE ADDICTION/RECOVERY SERVICES?

Yes. We understand some organizations have multiple programs. Having a program that serves youth or provides addiction/recovery services does not disqualify your organization from applying. However, no funds received through this grant can be used to support services to those under 21 or to fund addiction/recovery services.

CAN OUR ORGANIZATION SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE REQUEST FOR FUNDING?

No. We ask that each organization submit only one application for a Veteran Community Action Grant.

IF MY ORGANIZATION SUPPORTS ACTIVE MILITARY, AM I ELIGIBLE TO APPLY?

For this grant, we are focusing on organizations that support U.S. veterans. However, if your organization supports both veterans and active military, you are eligible to apply.
