Military Family Relief Fund Donate

Support our troops!

In the Fall of 2004, Public Act 363 of 2004 was signed by the governor to establish the Military Family Relief Fund (MFRF) within the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. In the Spring of 2014, Public Act 62 of 2014 amended the original Military Family Relief Fund Act. 

The purpose of the MFRF is to assist families of certain members of the reserve components of the United States armed forces called to active duty by the president of the United States or the United States secretary of defense as a result of national response to September 11, 2001 or as a response to a national emergency declared by the president of the United States and for which funds are being spent by the federal government.

This Act continues to assist military families with grants funding financial assistance for clothing, food, housing, utilities, medical services or prescriptions, insurance payments, vehicle payments or other related necessities of daily living.
