A $500 Veteran Assistance Grant (VAG) is available for veterans. They do not have to be members of the VFW, however, if we do provide a grant to a non-VFW member the post should combine the gift with a recruiting effort.

The purpose of the grant is to assist veterans who have an unexpected financial emergency such as medical expenses. The grant is not designed to support a veteran who intentionally did not purchase medical insurance or take reasonable care to ensure he can deal with financial emergencies.

Request forms should be sent to the Department of Pacific Areas (DPA) Senior Vice Commander:

The decision shall be made by the standing judging committee consisting of the DPA: Senior Vice Commander, Junior Vice Commander, Quartermaster, Chief of Staff, Immediate Past DPA Commander and the Adjutant. The DPA Commander shall vote in the case of a tie.
