A Relief Fund for Wounded Ohio Veterans

This blog already has posted information on the veteran's bonus available to Ohio veterans, but there's also a payment of $500 available to Ohio veterans and soldiers in Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom or New Dawn if they have sustained injuries and wounds in one of those conflicts.  It's called the Military Injury Relief Fund, and its' administered through the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services. 

It's a one-time only award for Ohio residents, and when you file the application, you must include: military activation orders, proof of injury, proof of Ohio residence, and either Report of Separation papers (for veterans) or proof of current service (if still in the military).  For more information, you can contact your county veteran's office or call 1-888-296-7541.  For more information on programs available for veterans in Ohio, see the state's Department of Veterans Services, or the Department of Jobs and Family Services Veteran's Services.
