Rules for submission/approval of assistance application
Assistance is available to any Living VETERAN - but payments will normally not be made directly to the VETERAN.
The application must be submitted to the committee. For an application to be complete it must be signed by the applicant and a copy of the applicants DD-214 showing an honorable discharge. A copy of the veterans VA card will suffice in place of the DD-214, if it is not available.
Reason: the VA card is not availabe to Veterans with a discharge "other than Honorable".
Any veteran can submit a valid, complete and signed application to the committee.
After the application with all documentation is presented to the committee, the committee must render a decision.
The Chapter Treasurer is to keep a register of recipients along with a copy of the disbursement check.
The Veterans Assistance Committee shall have documented approval for any dispersal of funds made from the Veterans Assistance Fund.
No loans will be given out of the Veterans Assistance Fund.
