Grant requests may be printed and mailed to P.O. Box 664, Fort Valley, GA 31030. The grants are competitive and requests will only be considered if the form is complete.
Your application packet must include hard copies of the SEGAMI Healthcare Grant Application (online), DD214, the actual medical bill and proof of income. Mail the entire packet to the address above. The veteran DD214 verifies that they received an honorable or general discharge, medical bill and proof of income (should be under 200% Federal Poverty Guideline for household). The fund can also be used to pay towards a veteran's spouse or child if they have a bill that needs coverage. The $1000 is only a one-time payment for the household. If the benefit is paid for a spouse a marriage certificate has to be included in the packet and if it's for a child the child's birth certificate is needed. The fund will also pay the "deductible" for medical surgeries for our veterans.
The $1000 payment would be paid directly to the hospital, not the veteran.
