Now, hope is never lost.
Too many caregivers are on the brink of homelessness and hunger or struggle to pay bills, due to joblessness, underemployment, unexpected care costs, and unpredictable benefits.
We’ve teamed with Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation to provide military caregivers emergency relief grants to get them back on track.
Critical financial assistance for military and veteran caregivers
The Hope Fund for Critical Financial Assistance will provide financial relief to all eras of military and veteran caregivers through grants that aim to put military families on the path to financial wellness. These grants provide high-impact financial assistance to prevent or address a significant crisis or to improve the quality of life of the caregiver family. This financial relief fills the gaps that other programs may not cover, such as medical bills, natural disaster assistance, emergency transportation for appointments, or loss of income.
Caregivers who would benefit from assistance are strongly encouraged to apply. Please do not suffer through hardship when help is available.
- You must provide care to a wounded, ill, or injured veteran or service member (and submit proof of service).
- You must seek financial support for services completed within the 50 U.S. states and territories.
If you’ve applied to receive financial assistance, thank you for taking the necessary steps to help you and your family. Our goal is to provide this critical help to as many military and veteran families as possible.
If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].
