Grants For Disabled Veterans
With Service Disability Or Not
There are grants for disabled veterans to help them live life to the fullest. Especially if you're a veteran with a disability, you CAN get help to win life's daily battles.
Attention! To be clear, when we use the word "grants" here, it's meant as a catch-all for any type of benefit: income supplements, counseling, therapy, medications, housing and so on.
Oh and one more thing. There is no such thing as "debt relief grants" to help you pay down your personal debt. Disabled veteran or not, you may not like to hear this, especially if you have creditors hounding you.
Think about it. If such grants existed, people would spend way beyond their means, building up huge personal debts that they know would be paid off by the government. It's simply not logical.
Good news! There's still lots of help available and we can help you get it!
Getting Grants: Like A Military Operation
|Make A Detailed Plan|
Before Charging Ahead
With Your Application
To A Granting Agency
You've been in the services so you know that a lot of planning goes into any operation. Getting grants is like a military operation!
Because of too much hype about grants and not enough truth, most people think that all you have to do is ask the government for money and they'll give it to you. The reality is much different.
Here are the main steps involved in getting any kind of grant:
- Put Your Situation In Writing
- Determine Grants Available
- Learn Grant Evaluation Criteria
- Write Your Grant Application
- Follow Up, Learn, Improve
With your military experience you have an enormous advantage over others in understanding the need for a well-developed plan of attack.
Following is a bit more detail on each step in the process of getting grants for disabled veterans.
|Like your warriors, the chess pieces are all lined up ready for battle.|
Your plan for a grant application will be just as well thought out.
Step 1. Put Your Situation In Writing
Putting your situation in writing forces you to make things clear for others (like granting agencies) to understand. You MUST do this step. We can help you, all at no cost. Go to our Disability Help Guide page to learn how.
Step 2. Determine Grants Available
There are thousands of grants available. You have no choice but to scout the terrain extensively until you find something that matches your situation. There are online databases to make this step somewhat easier.
Step 3. Learn Grant Evaluation Criteria
Once you've found a grant program, you need to learn how your application will be evaluated. Sometimes it's very clear, sometimes not. If it's not clear, you have to find out. Otherwise you could be wasting your time.
Step 4. Write Your Grant Application
Follow the granting agency's instructions to the letter. Show them how you are helping THEM to meet THEIR goals. Assume they only care about themselves and they don't give a damn about you.
Step 5. Follow Up, Learn, Improve
You likely won't win that first skirmish. Debrief. Assess what went wrong. Develop a better plan and attack again. Your new strategy might involve another target (granting agency).
Ready, Aim, Apply... For Grants!
Government grants for disabled veterans just might be the charging cavalry you've been wanting to come to your rescue.
There's over a billion dollars in free grants available, so why not get your fair share?
Maybe you feel it's not for you or that you won't qualify. It ain't necessarily so!
Just make sure to apply for the right grant and use it for the very reason you gave when you applied.
You can apply to several disability grant programs. If you're turned down for one, you simply apply to another.
And each additional time that you "go into battle," the better you'll be prepared for victory!
Disabled grants for the military can help you achieve burning ambitions that you might have suppressed.
Isn't it time you unleashed your potential? Aren't you...
Veterans especially should shoot for the stars when applying. Don't think you're forgotten. If you require assistance, then please look into applying for grants. It's time others came to your aid.
