APPLICATION PROCESS

Step 2: Submit application for processing by creating an account or logging in to my VETCares Portal.
Step 3: Caseworkers will review your application and contact you for any additional information.
Step 4: The case is evaluated and, if approved, you will be notified.

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.
