Our Financial Assistance program was designed to provide temporary and emergency financial assistance to eligible veterans, their dependents, and surviving spouses. Applicants must demonstrate financial need as determined by the VSC and must be otherwise eligible under the Ohio Revised Code, Section 5901.
