The department awards grants between $ 25,000 and $ 150,000, depending on the number of eligible applicants, applicants’ needs, and the availability of funds.
“IDVA’s previous GVS awards focused on veteran homelessness,” said Dennis Wimer, IDVA director. “We are pleased to continue this work and provide grants to other areas of critical need for Indiana’s veterans, including therapeutic services, connecting veterans with their state and federal benefits, and training and job search assistance.”
