The Peter Wojtecki Veteran Housing Foundation is taking applications from struggling US military veterans living the towns of New Canaan, Darien, Norwalk and Stamford to receive a housing grant starting January 2013.
The grant will help pay the rent, mortgage or other significant expense for the recipient for up to a full year. All needy veterans in the area should apply for the grant before October 31. It is very generous and it could make an enormous difference in keeping a veteran and his family in their home.
The purpose of the award is to help a veteran who temporarily has an unexpected occurrence and is down on his luck. With a little help, it will lift the veteran out of debt and open a door to the future.
To be eligible, the veteran must:
- Have encountered a hardship primarily due to no fault of their own
- Be drug and alcohol free
- Reside in either Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk or Stamford
- Be a veteran or current member of the US armed forces or the National Guard
The application deadline is October 31st. The grant will be awarded in December.
