IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
300x113-Check6-Long-Logo-White.png

AUSV and Check-6 Foundation partnered back in April 2020 with the goal to help as many veterans who saw a significant decrease in income or loss of income completely, due to COVID-19.

Since April 2020  the Recovery Project has helped fund over 60 veteran households in need across the Nation. 

WHAT IS COVID-19 RECOVERY PROJECT

We want to do everything we can to make sure the community of veterans we serve and their families have the support of all of us to get through the storm with dignity. The project will screen applications to verify and confirm that the individuals meet the hardship criteria we have set for those whom can benefit from our recovery project. 

While we want to help everyone who seeks assistance during this time of crisis, we need your support to ensure that we meet the needs of our community members who reach out to us for financial assistance. 

WHO BENEFITS

Nearly one-fourth of the households are Asset-Limited, Income-Constrained, and Employed. IN SHORT: They have no savings to help in a time of crisis.

As a veterans advocacy organization we felt that it is our obligation to do our part in helping veterans who have lost income and were placed in financial hardships  due to the COVID-19  pandemic. 

HOW WE HELP

Veterans who have lost life altering income due to COVID-19 pandemic can submit a request for assistance through this portal. Our team will screen all applicants diligently  to help those  in need with essential funding for rent, electricity and water bills, food and out of pocket prescription cost. 

Direct payments will not be made to veterans. All funding will be paid directly to the entities to which veterans owe.
