Military Family Assistance (MFA) Fund
The Military Family Assistance Fund (MFA) provides financial support to members of the Louisiana National Guard and U.S. Armed Forces Reserves and their families as well as certain Veterans when they experience financial hardships and when certain criteria apply. In order to receive funds through MFA, a completed application must be submitted to LDVA including all required supporting documentation. MFA can pay up to $10,000.00 for one claim per active-duty order in a twelve (12) month period.
MFA is funded by private donations from individuals and corporations. Visit our How to Help page to donate to the MFA fund.
The minimum qualifications include that the Guardsmen and Reservists must have been placed on active-duty status for more than thirty (30) consecutive days since September 11, 2001.
