The Military Family Assistance Fund (MFA) provides financial support to servicemembers 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.
Qualifications: The minimum qualifications include that the servicemember must have been placed on active-duty status for more than thirty (30) consecutive days since September 11, 2001. Immediate family members of eligible military personnel may apply on behalf of their loved one. Completed applications must be accompanied by supporting documentation and must be filed no later than six (6) months after returning from active-duty.
