The Jacksonville Military Veterans Community Partnership Grants program will provide financial assistance to organizations offering services for Veterans and active duty military members who are in the process of transitioning to civilian life in Jacksonville, Florida.
Although the scope of financial assistance to selected Veterans service providers might change over time; initially, Veteran services focused on highest needs of the Veterans community and designated a 501(c) 3 will be given the highest consideration for funding through the partnership grants. On-going operational costs and salaries will be ineligible for funding.
The grants will primarily focus on services that support the transition to civilian life, provide emergency financial assistance, support local career assistance, provide military spouse/family support, and encourage wrap-around social services support.
