DAV’s COVID-19 Unemployment Relief

Are you a disabled veteran who has lost employment due to the COVID-19 pandemic? If so, you can now apply for aid through DAV’s COVID-19 Unemployment Relief program.

Our COVID-19 Unemployment Relief program was established to provide assistance to service-connected disabled Veterans who have lost employment as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, including Veterans who are self-employed as contractors or small business owners. This critical aid is meant to help Veterans pay bills, obtain food and provide for their families during this challenging time.

If you or a Veteran you know may be eligible, please visit to learn more and apply for aid. All applicants must upload and submit documented proof of service-connected disability and documentation that shows loss of employment as a direct result of the pandemic.
