Emergency Financial Assistance

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) can provide emergency financial assistance to warrior households for some, but not all, situations. A warrior’s household may be eligible for a one-time financial grant only when all other options have been exhausted. Requests for assistance can usually be fulfilled in two business days.

WWP provides emergency financial assistance for:

  • Past-due rent or mortgage, not including eviction or foreclosure
  • Past-due utilities with shut-off notice
    • Will cover what keeps services running, not the total bill
  • Hotel stays of up to two nights
    • Will not cover incidentals
  • Food
  • Vision
    • Replacement of glasses or contacts
  • Medical and dental emergencies
    • Non-cosmetic
    • Includes certain follow-up costs
  • Home repair
    • The home must be considered uninhabitable
  • Transportation
    • Only if employment could be impacted
  • Child Care
    • Only when in conjunction with new employment
    • WWP can assist with the initial payment 

For needs not listed above, please call or email the WWP Resource Center. We will help find other assistance options that work for you.
