Who is Eligible?
Members of the American Legion Auxiliary whose dues are current and who have maintained membership for three consecutive years (the current year and immediate past two years) are eligible to apply in the wake of a financial crisis. Temporary assistance may be considered when:
-A natural disaster or weather emergency leaves a member without shelter or food.
-A financial crisis hits, leaving a member without resources for shelter, food or utilities, and no other source of aid is readily available.
-In extreme circumstances, educational training is needed by a member lacking the necessary skills for employment.
Eligible members seeking emergency assistance apply via a process involving their unit, department and ALA National Headquarters.
Members may request an application by contacting their unit, department headquarters or downloading the application and must submit their completed applications to an officer of the ALA unit to which the member belongs. The unit president and secretary will complete the unit portion and forward the application to the department secretary. After verifying the member’s eligibility, the department secretary will submit the application to National Headquarters for consideration by the AEF Grant Committee. Applications are reviewed by the national AEF case manager.
The national AEF Grant Committee, comprised of representatives from the headquarters of the American Legion Auxiliary and The American Legion, reviews each application and awards AEF assistance according to case findings. The AEF Grant Committee maintains the confidentiality of all applicants. AEF applications, reviews, supporting documents and case files are not disclosed or released to anyone outside the AEF Grant Committee.
