St. Clair County, MI — Veterans in economic distress can get help from the St. Clair County Department of Veterans Affairs. The Department has secured funding for the County Veteran Service Fund Emergency Relief (CVSF-ER) program.
Veterans from all eras, wartime and peacetime, may be eligible for the funding for things like home and vehicle repairs, medical expenses, and other urgent needs. There is also a grocery voucher program through the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency and Meijer, where food and personal care items can be purchased.
According to Outreach Coordinator, Nancy Deising, “Our peacetime-era veterans often struggle to find benefits they qualify for and the CVSF-ER program will be a huge help for many.” The grants will be given out on a first come, first serve basis.
Applications are available online at www.sccvet.us or by calling the Veterans Affairs Office at 810-989-6945. The deadline to apply is September 18, 2020.
