 +If you’re facing financial difficulty due to a deployment or because of an injury related to your service, you might want to check out the Unmet Needs program offered by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. They provide financial assistance to those who qualify — and this is money that never has to be repaid. These grants can be up to $1500 and the money is sent to whomever you owe it to. Get more information about eligibility requirements on the VFW website. Qualification requirements depend on whether you are on active duty or if you were discharged before or after September 11, 2001.
Are you looking to hire veterans — or want to highlight an employer who does? The Department of Labor would like to help. They have started a new program called the Hire Vets Medallion Program. They have launched a demonstration which you can apply to view by going to the Department of Labor website. The program itself honors small, medium and large businesses which hire and support vets and their families. Applications for the Demonstration Program are available at hirevets.gov.  Those who are accepted and recognized in the initial program can also apply next year (2019).
