In 2006, with support from the Virginia Legislature, Governor Tim Kaine established the Military Family Relief Fund (MFRF). This is a quick response grant program to assist military and Family members of the Virginia National G u a r d and the United States Reserve Components who are residents of Virginia, and, who are called to active duty for periods in excess of 90 days in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom and up to 180 days after their return.

This fund will be administered by the Adjutant General of Virginia and disbursed by the State Treasurer.

Issues that qualify for MFRF grants: The Military Family Relief Fund assists military families with urgent or emergency needs relating to living expenses including but not limited to food, housing, utilities, and medical services. Each need is considered on its own merit.
