Services: USA Cares helps bear the burdens of service by providing post-9/11 militaryfamilies and veterans with financial and advocacy support in their time of need. Assistance is provided to all branches of service, all components and all ranks while protecting the privacy and dignity of those military families and veterans who request help. Program Activities: USA Cares provides support for those wounded in combat whose critical needs such as rent, mortgage payments, transportation to hospitals/physicians, essential bills, and other basic needs are not met by any other government program. Based on established criteria and need, assistance is available up to $2,500 per service member.
An extension of the Combat Injured Program, the Warrior Treatment Today (WTT) Program is designed to remove the financial barriers to treatment that exist for many service members suffering from PTSD and/or TBI. Many of these veterans cannot afford to leave their employment for in-patient treatment. National Guard and Reserve personnel are particularly vulnerable to this barrier when they resume their civilian lives after active duty.
To be eligible for either one of these two USA Cares Programs, participants must meet the following criteria. Their injuries must have occurred during military service in Iraq or Afghanistan. Relevant diagnoses must have been made by qualified military or civilian medical authorities. Loss of employment/income is not covered by medical or unemployment insurance. Financial difficulties must be significant enough that veterans’ families are in danger of losing their homes without financial assistance. Veterans must have been accepted into qualified treatment programs for recovery and rehabilitation. Documentation must be available to support the need. Finally, all potential recipients of assistance must be reviewed and approved by a USA Cares Virtual Committee.
USA Cares will provide financial assistance for essential household bills including rent and mortgage payments, utility bills, car payments, and repairs while veterans are in treatment – a period not to exceed 180 days. Payments are not made directly to veterans or their families but rather to landlords, banks, utility companies, etc. Throughout treatment, USA Cares Family Resource Coordinators will provide intensive case management to ensure approved payments are made in a timely manner and to coordinate various treatment/post treatment resources.
