Financial Assistance

The Ottawa County Veterans Service Commission provides emergency financial assistance on a temporary basis to eligible veterans and their dependents, for basic living expenses, such as:

● Rent/Mortgage
● Utilities
● Food
● Personal Hygiene
● Clothing
● School Supplies for Children
● Infant Needs

The veteran is required to have active federal service and have been discharged under honorable conditions.  Proof of service (DD Form 214) is required.

The applicant must have 90 days of residency in Ottawa County immediately preceding the date of application.  Proof of residency is required.

A definite financial need must be demonstrated.  The Veterans Service Commission considers many factors when determining financial need including income, living expenses, and liquid assets.

Each application shall be considered on its own merits, in accordance with Title 5901, Ohio Revised Code and pursuant to the policies and procedures, as established by the Veterans Service Commission.
