Veterans and active military who served after September 11, 2001, can receive assistance with critical needs such as food, rent, mortgage payments, utilities and more. You must have an injury or illness with a VA disability rating.
You can also apply for special programs like the Back-to-School Brigade (school supplies), Holiday Meals for Military, Military Child of the Year Award, Star Spangled Babies, etc. These programs provide items like holiday meals, school supplies, and baby items to the children of military families or veterans.
Transitional housing may be available for wounded warriors who are transitioning to civilian life. Upon placement in the Operation Homefront Village, residents will live rent-free while participating in mandatory counseling, support groups, workshops, benefits briefings, resume writing classes, and other programs. The veteran and their spouse will meet with a OH Counselor every 30 days for case management services.
Veterans may even receive donated homes through the Homes on the Homefront program! These homes are mostly foreclosures who have been donated and renovated. Some new construction homes may be available. Recipients must pay the property taxes, insurance, homeowner’s association fees, warranty and a portion of the closing costs.
Applications are only processed between the 1st and the 10th of each month.
