Small Grant Application

Our main goal under Operation Ward 57 is to enhance the lives of wounded warriors by providing support in order to improve the mental health and wellness of those struggling to overcome the burdens of war. Members of the United States Military put their lives at risk in the service of our country. Many suffer severe and often permanent psychological and physiological disability in the line of duty. Grants for these wounded heroes provide financial assistance in addition reducing the heavy burdens encountered as a result. This financial and emotional respite is a small gesture we can provide as a thank you for their sacrifice.
Please complete the following application to be considered for a one-time grant up to $250 from Operation Ward 57. Those eligible include post 9/11 active duty military personnel, career or medically retired military, or those honorably discharged from service who have been injured, wounded or acquired a disease during service (VA rating of 60% or higher). Eligibility is also extended to the immediate family members if they are a caregiver or NMA. Examples of small grants we might fund: temporary financial assistance, shelter, food, utilities & health expenses, assistance with child care, other routine household expenses, home & vehicle adaption, funeral expenses, adaptive equipment, moving assistance, travel, etc. Grant money is paid directly to the person or company owed the debt, such as a landlord or electric company whenever possible. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Submitting an application does not guarantee funding. The amounted funded is up to the discretion of Operation Ward 57 and may not equal the funds requested. Requests over the $250 limit will be considered on a case by case basis. Emergency grant applications will be handled on a case by case basis. For non-emergent applications expect up to 2 weeks for your application to be reviewed and receive a response. All decisions will be emailed to the email address provided for the service member. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT THIS APPLICATION BE SUBMITTED BY A CASE MANAGER (VA, AW2, SOCIAL WORKER, ETC). Completion of this application acts as a Release of Information for all parties listed on the application and case managers or unit contacts may be contacted to verify information.

 Grants may only be received 1 time in a 12 month period or at the discretion of the Operation Ward 57 staff. 

Examples of items we do not fund include vehicle repairs, credit card debt, medical, childcare or school expenses.
