Freedom Grants are intended to provide financial support to local Lodges with programs assisting and enhancing the lives of Veterans, the active military and their families. There will be 300 Freedom Grants of $2,000 each awarded for 2018-19. The application window opened on July 1. This is also a first come first serve grant - meaning, get your grant application in as soon as possible after July 1. The level of Lodge involvement is taken into consideration.
Freedom Grants will be used to clothe, feed and house homeless Veterans and provide necessities, therapeutic equipment and recreation to hospitalized Veterans. Grants will allow Lodges to take Veterans and the local military units on outings, host dinners at the Lodge, hospital or base, and support the active military by shipping care packages overseas.
