Michigan has a Veterans Trust Fund

Are you aware of your benefits? Michigan has a Veterans Trust Fund that is used to assist veterans in need of emergency grants for:

  • Mortgage payments
  • Rent
  • Past due utility bills
  • Medical bills (limit to $200)
  • Dental/optical bills
  • Vehicle payments
  • Vehicle repairs
  • Home repairs
  • Vehicle insurance

To be eligible you must be a resident of Michigan and Macomb County; discharged under honorable conditions; serve 180 days of active wartime service OR have been awarded an expeditionary medal.

  • WWI: April 6, 1917 – Nov. 1, 1918
  • WWII: Dec. 7, 1941 – Dec. 31 1946
  • KOREA: June 27, 1950 – January 31, 1955
  • VIETNAM: Feb. 28, 1961 – May 7, 1975
  • PERSIAN GULF: Aug. 2, 1990 – Present

Emergent need is further defined to mean an unforeseen circumstance causing a temporary financial emergency or hardship that a grant will resolve. The key factor in determining whether or not a grant is approved is the ability of the applicant to manage the obligation for which aid is requested after a grant is made. If there is no reasonable expectation that the Michigan Veterans Trust Fund Grant would enable the applicant to resume his/her financial responsibility, then a grant does not meet policy.
