With the number of wounded service members returning home to their communities increasing every day, Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is excited to have an opportunity to support other veteran-serving nonprofit organizations to ensure that every service member, veteran, and their family is recognized, and their reintegration needs are supported. WWP Program Grants allow us to work with various organizations to provide programming that meets the needs of our population in specific geographic regions of the country where existing services are limited and to fill the gaps in services.
Our in-depth grant evaluation process ensures WWP provides financial support to groups espousing kindred priorities and policies, with the same commitment to our mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Historically, WWP has supported organizations that seek to enhance the lives of wounded service members through programs aimed at improving mental health and wellness; exposing wounded service members to new opportunities for physical fitness and activity; connecting wounded service members with their peers and communities; and enhancing economic empowerment and independence.
Since its inception in 2012, WWP Program Grants has held two grant cycles each year. WWP Program Grants are awarded in amounts up to $250,000 and last one full year from the date of award.
