Emergency Financial Assistance

The items listed below are a guideline of items that we will need to process your application for financial assistance. Not all of the items will apply to you; however, you can use them as a checklist to make sure you have all the information that is necessary for you to file a claim. When in doubt about individual requirements to bring, please contact the Williams County Veterans Office (419) 636-8812. We understand every household is different, please be advised it’s a household claim, and we will process the claim as such.

The Williams County Veterans Service Commission has set policy to approve the following requests:

Each applicant for financial assistance must meet the definition of a Veteran as defined by Title 5901.01 of the Ohio Revised Code and meet the requirements set forth in the Williams County Financial Assistance Policy. Applicants must be a Veteran, an Active Duty member of the Armed Forces of the United States, the spouse, surviving spouse, a dependent parent, minor child, or ward of the veteran or the Active Duty member. Reserve and National Guard members have to meet specific requirements to qualify.

Applicants must have been a bona fide resident of Williams County for a period of 3 months/90 days immediately preceding application. Proof of residency will be required.

In most cases, the Veteran must be present to make the application. A financial need must exist to be eligible, the following documents, plus any other documents, that the service officer views pertinent will be used to process your claim.

This list is not an all-inclusive list it is simply a brief checklist provided for you as a guideline to help expedite your FA Claim.
