Are You a Veteran Impacted by COVID-19?

The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs is accepting applications for a new program for Minnesota Veterans who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

MDVA will be awarding one-time financial relief grants in the amount of $1,000.

Eligible Applicants must be:
1. A Veteran as defined by MN Statute 197.447, or the surviving spouse
(who has not remarried) of a deceased veteran, and
2. A Minnesota Resident, and
3. Have been negatively financially impacted by COVID-19

Funding is available for both Disaster Relief Grants and Special Needs Grants.
Both grant applications may be submitted through your County Veterans Service Officer. The Disaster Relief Grant may also be submitted directly
online by a Veteran or surviving spouse.
