Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle announced $1.5 million in funding today for Honor Grants - a program spearheaded by the Cook County Department of Veterans Affairs (CCVA) - to expand programming offered by nonprofit organizations that serve the veteran community and their families.
Honor Grants are available to nonprofit organizations who have existing programs for veterans and their families that provide resources and services to address mental health, education and job placement, home and food security in addition to making benefits more accessible.
Nonprofit organizations who have experienced significant revenue loss during the COVID-19 pandemic and require support to sustain and expand existing programs for veterans are encouraged to apply.
Applications opened today and close Friday, September 30.
CCVA will distribute:
• 20 – $25,000 grants
• 10 – $50,000 grants
• 5 – $100,000 grants
