Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Foundation Provides Grant to aid local area Veterans-in-Need  

Melbourne, Fl – April 24, 2021

The Cape Canaveral Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAACC) was one of 33 Chapters from among MOAA’s 400+ affiliates across the nation awarded a MOAA Foundation Outreach Grant to support veterans in local communities this year.  This is the fifth year MOAA offered Community Outreach grants, but the first time The Cape Chapter has received one. 

MOAACC received a $3,750 grant from the MOAA Foundation to identify and assist area veterans and their family members in critical need of assistance with housing, subsistence, health, financial or other emergency relief.  Over the next few months, members of MOAACC will be working with three local area veterans/veterans support organizations—The Veterans Center of Melbourne (under the Veterans Administration), The Volunteers of America (VOA), and the National Veterans Homeless Support (NVHS)–to identify and verify veterans or families of veterans in need.  Once area veterans-in-need are identified and validated by the veterans/veteran support organization, we will identify specific needs, deliver items or make assistance payments. 

Colonel Steve Bond, US Army Retired and the President of MOAACC said: “We thank the MOAA Foundation for this grant.  Taking care of our brother and sister veterans and their families is one of the reasons why we exist as an organization.” 

Last year, the Cape Canaveral Chapter donated nearly $100,000 to area veterans, active serving military families, and military oriented students. 

If you know of a veteran-in-need, have them contact one of the above organizations.  For more about the MOAA Grants, go here on the MOAA website.
