Formerly called COVID-19 Emergency Grant. Providing members and their families in need with immediate relief while seeking further assistance.
Support Our Troops recognizes now more than ever that Canadian Armed Forces members and their families may require financial support for basic needs.
The Minor Grant will provide an immediate solution of modest support (up to $200) to members and their families to provide applicants with additional time to determine other available solutions.
Eligible applicants can apply to receive the following grant:
*If it is determined that additional financial support is required, then a referral will be made to the local SISIP Financial Counsellor. There may be other loans and / or grants that can be accessed.
- A one-time* $200 (maximum) grant per household for specific basic needs.
- For serving regular force and reserve force members and their families* with an urgent need for immediate support of basic needs including gas, groceries, and medications.
*Family members as reflected on a member's MPRR.
Applicants should complete the Minor Grant form
and submit it to their local chaplain, SISIP Financial Counsellor, Support Our Troops contact, or MFRC.
The Minor Grant is not a long-term solution to emergency financial distress. The grant is intended to provide temporary financial relief while obtaining more sustainable solutions from other programs.
