HEIDELBERG, Germany – The Army Homefront Fund helps to provide a variety of financial assistance to Wounded Warriors and their Families.

In order to assist recovering Wounded Warriors who face financial challenges, the Army Homefront Fund provides grants, not loans, for emergency financial assistance, emergency food, transitional family housing, emergency home repairs, critical baby items, vehicle repair service, furniture and household items, local moving assistance and Wounded Warrior wives retreats. The Fund’s goal is simply to get the Wounded Warriors and their families the resources they need.

Soldiers can apply for assistance through its web site at http://www.armyhomefrontfund.org/Mafa.aspx

The Fund launched on June 13, 2011, with a Memorandum of Understanding between Operation Homefront and the U.S. Army Warrior Transition Command. The Army Homefront Fund liaisons closely with the WTC and in conjunction with a robust non-profit agency network works diligently to support the needs of Soldiers.
