Do you need financial assistance? Do you know where to go for help?
Any veteran or veteran’s dependant in need of financial assistance is eligible to apply for financial aid from the Poppy Trust Fund. Grants are available for food, fuel, clothing, prescription medication, medical appliances or equipment, essential home repairs and emergency shelter or assistance.
You can apply for financial assistance from The Royal Canadian Legion at your local branch, the provincial command or through Dominion Command. Veterans should first submit their application to their local branch; however, where the amount of funding needed by the veteran is significant, requiring several funding partners, or when the local branch level has expended all of its poppy trust funds, the application should be submitted to the provincial command and, if necessary, to Dominion Command.
