Note: While we want to assist all that apply, that is not realistic due to our limited financial and human resources. Our priority is to rank and process the most critical cases. We are currently experiencing a high volume of requests for financial help for military families. As a result, you may encounter some delay in the processing of your case. We appreciate your patience.

Attention Lending and Real Estate Professionals: Share with clients who you think may qualify for this grant. Have them follow the steps in the Application Process above.
