Our Military Kids is still here providing grants for camps and other activities. Their program provides grants which pay for extra-curricular programs such as sports, fine arts, camps, tutoring services, driver’s training, and STEM programs, as well as tons of other activities. They have provided nearly 70,000 grants to National Guard and Reserve children since our program began in 2004.
The grants are available to children age 5-18 with a National Guard or Reserve parent currently deployed, getting ready to deploy overseas, or to children with a wounded military parent who is currently receiving treatment for combat related injuries. The maximum grant award is currently $300 per child. Families need to fill out their simple grant application, attach current orders, ID for each child, and a program brochure or registration form showing the cost of each child’s activity. Each grant check is made payable to the organization or service provider and mailed to the family inside a “top secret” packet for each child.
Attached are the two grant applications (Air Force Reserve/Air National Guard and one for all other reserve branches), and their flyer. Families can now apply online, via fax, email, or mail their grant application and supporting documents to our office.
