Minnesotans' Military Appreciation Fund
State of Minnesota
The Minnesotans' Military
Appreciation Fund was established to say thank you to
Minnesotans that have served in a combat zone since September 11, 2001.
The Minnesota Military
Appreciation Fund is now paying grants to all Minnesota service members
that have served in a DoD Combat Zone since September 11, 2001, to
include Bosnia, Kosovo and Croatia. This grant (appreciation
bonus) is awarded to all Minnesota service members,
Guard/Reserve/Active, regardless of rank or financial situation.
Those living outside Minnesota but are members of a Minnesota
Guard/Reserve unit that was deployed are also eligible.
There are grant levels for
all Minnesota military personnel who serve in a combat zone, for those
wounded in a combat zone, and for families of those killed in combat.
For those about to be
deployed to a qualifying area, you may apply after one month of service
in a combat zone when you have a copy of your LES showing Combat Pay.

eligibility details, and grant application forms, visit the
