Critical Financial Assistance

Do you need financial assistance for overdue bills, repairs, or other critical family needs? If you are active duty, deployed, a veteran, or are a wounded, ill or injured service member — and meet our criteria — you may be eligible for assistance from Operation Homefront’s Critical Financial Assistance.

Since 2011, we have fulfilled over 42,000 unique requests from military families, providing over $26 million in assistance. In 2018, 97% of the families helped by this program agreed or strongly agreed that our support helped them feel strong, stable, and secure.


During the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire Operation Homefront family is fully focused on our important mission and to ensuring that our military families receive the financial assistance they urgently need – when they need it. With this commitment in mind, we will continue to accept and process immediate requests for assistance outside the normal monthly application cycle.
