MOAA Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Financial Relief Grant Application




COVID-19 Emergency Financial Relief Grants are available to currently serving, veterans with honorable discharges, or caregivers of the same. You’ll be asked to prove negative financial impact from the COVID-19 crisis as part of the application process. National MOAA or MOAA chapter membership is not a requirement, and members won’t receive preference. All ranks are eligible. Preference will be given to those ineligible for other relief programs, such as service relief societies.


What We Will Help With

  • Rent
  • Mortgage
  • Auto Loan/Lease
  • Utilities (electric, water, heat)
  • Cellphone payments
  • Internet access
  • Additional grant categories, outside of the list above, will be considered on a case-by case basis.


What to Include With Your Completed Application

When submitting your application, please be sure to provide proof of negative financial impact (layoff, reduced hours, etc.) because of the COVID-19 crisis when submitting your application. You will also need to include copies of debt documentation (for example: a utility bill, apartment lease and/or late notice), along with your application and proof of negative financial impact. If these items are not included with the application, it will not be accepted or judged.
