About County Veteran Service Fund (CVSF) Grant
The County Veteran Service Fund (CVSF) Grant is intended to provide emergent financial relief to wartime and peacetime veterans, service members, dependents, or survivors who need assistance with repairs and bills pertaining to expenses related to the home; childcare; medical; prescriptions; food/personal care; dental; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); household appliances; vision and hearing; plumbing; rent; mortgage; and utilities like heat, propane, water, and electricity.
These emergent relief funds are funds of last resort, meaning all other available resources have been utilized or exhausted, to include the Michigan Veterans Trust Fund (MVTF), Soldiers and Sailors Relief Fund, and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The emergent relief must be necessary to meet the necessities of daily life and not for the relief of an inconvenience or the purchase of a want or desire. Assistance is only available until September 30, 2021.
A MVTF Application must be completed along with a copy of military discharge document (DD214 or other), supporting documentation such as copy of bills, repair estimates, and the reason for the emergent need.
