Army Emergency Relief (AER) is ready to help soldiers affected by the recent hurricanes. Financial assistance is available to qualified recipients affected by those three hurricanes to, among other things, purchase immediate-need items such as food, clothing and shelter; replace essential furniture; fund replacement of damaged or destroyed automobiles; conduct minor home repairs; and purchase generators. AER can assist up to $4,000, for example, if the cost to repair a flood-damaged vehicle exceeds the value of the vehicle. Eligible recipients of AER assistance include active duty Soldiers and their Families, retired Soldiers, and National Guard and Reserve Soldiers on Title 10 orders for more than 30 days.
