Vet 2 Vet Maine was awarded a $7,500 mini-grant in July. These mini-grants are made possible by the recent release of CARES Act funding by the federal government in response to the COVID-19 emergency. This grant will support Vet to Vet Maine’s response to the growing needs of older veterans during these challenging times. This grant is especially appreciated because it will help cover expenses such as background checks for volunteers who will then connect to isolated veterans in our communities. The grant also provides emergency funds for V2VME veterans who need help to pay for groceries, medicine, fuel, and other crucial supplies.
