Subject: Are you and Indiana Veteran in need of financial assistance?
Dear: [ Name],
If you are an Indiana veteran facing a financial hardship that also affects your family members, the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs has expanded the eligibility of the Military Family Relief Fund—MFRF—to Hoosier veterans and their families across the state by offering an emergency financial assistance fund.
The MFRF is focused on ensuring Indiana veterans and the Indiana service community can have access to emergency financial assistance which provides up to $2,500 to cover their most central and basic needs:
- Housing (rent / Mortgage)
- Current Medical Expenses
- Transportation (vehicle payment/basic emergency repairs /insurance)
Additionally, we encourage all Indiana veterans to contact their local County Veteran Service Officers (CVSO). The CVSO is an essential, local expert on state and federal veteran benefits and can provide valuable information on how to access these many programs.
To learn more about the Military Family Relief fund, see if you qualify for assistance, and locate your local CVSO, please visit https://www.in.gov/dva/.
