The Colorado Board of Veterans Affairs through a grant program provides grants from the Colorado state Veterans Trust Fund. The grant program is available to provide funds to assist in veterans programs. Such programs may include, but are not limited to; transportation programs, food and shelter for homeless veterans and their families, incarcerated veterans programs, homeless standdowns, job assistance programs and other worthwhile programs that provide a "direct service" to the veteran community. Memorials, club renovations, honor guards and tributes to veterans are not included in the grant program. The board in determining who receives a grant award places emphasis on rural communities and grantees that describe how the program will be continued in the absence of continued funding. Only nationally chartered veterans service organizations are eligible to apply for a grant. The applications must address the needs of veterans in your community and the applications must use the proper application form which is found below. Completed applications should be mailed to:
