The American Legion National Disaster Fund is offering help to qualified disaster victims of recent tornadoes and floods and future natural disasters. Qualified American Legion family members may receive up to $3,000 in National Emergency Fund (NEF) grants, and qualified children of Legion-eligible veterans may receive up to $2,500 through Temporary Financial Assistance (TFA) relief to help weather the storms. The grants cover expenses such as temporary housing, food, water, clothing and other daily household items. Affected Legion posts may also receive up to $10,000 through NEF grants. To apply for an NEF grant, qualified applicants may download an application from the American Legion website or contact their local Legion post. Those wishing to apply for a TFA grant must contact their local Legion post.
