                                         EMERGENCY GRANTS
                                           (PROCEDURE BRIEF)

Temporary assistance granted by the Michigan Veterans Trust Fund (MVTF) for
emergencies or hardships is available to eligible wartime veterans, and their families,
residing in the state. Under the authority of Public Act 9 of 1946 (as amended), the MVTF
cannot provide assistance for long-term problems or chronic financial difficulties. Those
eligible for the MVTF temporary grant program must apply through the MVTF county
committee serving their county of residence. All applications are investigated, deliberated,
and decided in confidence. Any applicant may request a personal hearing before the county
committee at the meeting when his/her application is considered. If the county committee
denies an application every applicant has the right to appeal that decision to the MVTF
Board of Trustees (with the opportunity to appear before the board to present information
and answer questions.) The MVTF does not provide loans under the temporary assistance
program.

General Definition of Need

When an eligible applicant is unable to temporarily provide the basic necessities of life in our
society without causing a hardship, a situation for a possible MVTF grant exists. The
assistance must be essential and not for the relief of an inconvenience, or the purchase of a
want/desire. The key factor in determining whether or not a grant is justified is the ability of
the applicant to manage the obligation for which aid is requested after a grant is made. If
there is no reasonable expectation that the MVTF grant would enable the applicant to
resume his/her responsibility, then aid is not appropriate or wise. Since the MVTF only has
the yearly earnings of the trust to provide grants and administer its operations, care must be
taken to insure that the resources are expended wisely and where they will help the most. If,
by experience with the MVTF or through other means, an applicant's financial situation
creates repetitive "emergencies" or appears chronic in nature, the county committee and/or
the board must refer that person to other resources designed to address those lingering
needs. In addition, the applicant should have attempted to resolve the emergency or
hardship through every reasonable means available prior to asking the MVTF for assistance.
(Often the willingness to take responsibility for one's difficulties is demonstrated by the ability
to pay a portion of the debt). In other words, the applicant should have tried to resolve the
problem, but is apparently unable to do so without MVTF aid.

Basic Eligibility

To be eligible for a grant from the MVTF a veteran or dependent must be a legal resident of
the State of Michigan at the time of the application. The veteran must have been discharged
under honorable conditions, with at least 180 days of active wartime service (90 days for
WWI veteran), or have been separated as the result of a physical or mental disability
incurred in the line of duty (or aggravated by active duty). Service during the following
periods (or an Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, plus 180 days of honorable active
duty, for service between periods in places such as Grenada, Lebanon, Berlin, Persian Gulf,
Mayaguez Operation, or Desert Storm) is required:

                           WW I          -   April 6, 1917, to November 11, 1918
                                             (If service in Russia, then to April 1, 1920)

                           WW II         -   December 7, 1941, to December 31, 1946

                           Korea         -   June 27, 1950, to January 31, 1955

                           Vietnam       -   February 28, 1961, to May 7, 1975

                           Persian Gulf      -August 2, 1990, to present

If a veteran has less than 180 days of active duty during these eras, duty in more than one
period may be combined. Evidence of separation or discharge with less than 180 days of
wartime service due to a physical or mental disability is required to determine eligibility.

Documentation
One or more of the following items may be required when filing an application for trust fund
assistance:

              * Discharge papers, separation report, or DD-214 (showing the dates of
                active duty and the character of the release)

              * Proof of residence (driver's license, voter registration, state I. D.)

              * Marriage certificate; birth certificates for minor children

              * Death certificate of a deceased spouse or parent

              * Bills or account statements regarding the items for which you are seeking
                a MVTF grant

              * Documentation of any disability rating

              * Proof of employment or other income

              * Evidence of efforts at other appropriate agencies

Whether or not a grant is made by the MVTF, anyone who feels that they are eligible may
apply for assistance through the county/district committees operating in Michigan's
83 counties.

                                    REQUESTS FOR MILITARY RECORDS

Over the years the Michigan Veterans Trust Fund (MVTF) has acquired administrative control of active
duty records for many of Michigan's citizens. These records are primarily form DD-214 (or its
predecessor, Report of Separation) and are broken down into several categories:

                                                  Civil War
                                                World War I
                                           World War II (Bonus)
                                               Korea (Bonus)
                                              Vietnam (Bonus)
                                         Post Vietnam (since 1979)

Because of the increasing numbers of requests for copies of these documents (to verify service for
medical care, employment, retirement, VA claims, replacement, etc.) staff persons have been
assigned to process these requests and maintain the records.

Although these records are maintained to assist veterans and their families, the general guidelines for
privacy and confidentiality apply. Therefore, all future requests must comply with the following
procedure:

                      1. As much information as possible must be obtained to identify
                         the appropriate file and confirm the identity of the veteran.
                      2. Whether the request is phoned, faxed, or written, a release
                         from the veteran must be obtained.
                      3. If the veteran is deceased, incapacitiated, or being represented
                         by another, appropriate documentation must accompany the
                         request (death certificate, guardianship papers, or power of
                         attorney).

The records listed above are stored in three separate locations. Without adequate information all six
categories would have to be searched. In addition (for the same reasons as the National Personnel
Record Center), the signature of the veteran, next of kin, or representative is mandatory. The use of
the form that follows (see example) is very important -- it makes processing the request more efficient,
and it provides protection for the privacy of the individual. The standard procedure is to provide two
certified copies at no charge. If more are needed then state how many in the "Extra Notes" section.

    The Michigan Veterans Foundation (MVF), a non-profit organization with tax-exempt status under
section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, has received funding and is operating a multistage
transitional housing, personal development, and rehabilitation program for homeless veterans. It is
located in the Cass Corridor area of the City of Detroit.

As the MVF expands its funding base, it intends to expand services to veterans in collaboration with the
VSO's throughout the state.
