The grants cover basic needs including food, rent and utilities. Candidates who can prove a financial need exists may apply for assistance at www.OperationHomefront.net.

Operation Homefront is a national nonprofit that provides emergency assistance to service members’ families. It has met more than 590,000 military families’ needs since its 2002 inception.
