Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $5,000 to USA active-duty and military veterans, National Guard and Reserve, and unmarried surviving spouses or civil union partners of eligible veterans for a home purchase, home refinance, or home renovation loan that will take place in the next 6-12 months.

All applicants must submit a 600-1,500 word essay explaining how the grant will impact their home life. The winner will be selected based on the eligibility requirements listed above, with a strong emphasis on compelling essays.

Supporting the veteran and military community is one of The Mortgage Report's greatest priorities. As veterans and current members of the Armed Forces, you have protected and served our country without asking anything in return. While the Foundation can offer their expert opinion on personal finance topics related to mortgages and real estate, they will always fall short of fulfilling their commitment to veterans and active-duty men and women.

Homeownership is important to the Funding Source because they know it's important to you. Owning a home is part of the fabric of society, it's the American Dream. It's a financial goal for almost every American, and it's a goal the Funding Source believes everyone should have in their sights, especially the women and men who have served in the nation's military.
