Service for Vets: DAV Delivers
The brave men and women of our military travel around the world to defend the freedom we enjoy at home. So it’s only right that when they return, we bring the services and support they need, to those veterans where they live. Our Mobile Service Offices reach veterans with mobility challenges, and those who live in rural regions far away from the services they’re guaranteed. Our information seminars give veterans the help they need to file and receive VA claims, as well as everyday support as they take back normal life. And for some vets, the situation is more urgent. DAV’s outreach to homeless veteran, and our disaster relief grants, lend a helping hand to those veterans who face additional hurdles in their return to life at home.

DAV Disaster relief grants may be issued for the purpose of providing food, clothing, temporary shelter or to obtain relief from injury, illness or personal loss not covered by insurance or other disaster relief agencies. The Gulf Coast hurricanes, the Midwestern floods, tornadoes and fires are just some of the natural disasters that have recently impacted veterans and their families.
To be eligible for a disaster relief grant, the applicant must:
- be the victim of a natural/national disaster.
- be a service-connected disabled veteran or the spouse thereof (same household).
- not be covered by insurance.
- not be covered by other emergency relief agencies.
