Veterans' Relief Fund
The Revised Code of Washington (RCW 73.08) requires all 39 counties to establish a Veterans' Relief Fund.
The Veterans' Relief Fund may be able to help with rent, utilities, food, and a number of other needs the veteran or qualifying family member may have.
This is a fund of last resort and in no way can it be construed as a veteran's benefit.
All applications must be filed with local service officers at veteran support organizations. Please contact your local service officer to discuss making an application. To apply for assistance from Grays Harbor County Veterans' Relief Fund, you must have been honorably discharged, have been a resident of Grays Harbor County for at least 6 months, and have income below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level.
When contacting service officers, it may be helpful to bring:
- a copy of your DD-214
- proof of residency
- proof of income
- any shut-off or eviction notices requiring payment
If you are denied assistance or feel that you have been discriminated against, you have the right to file an appeal and request that a full explanation of the reasons why you were denied assistance be put in writing.
