Emergency Financial Assistance
The Oregon Veterans’ Emergency Financial Assistance Program (OVEFAP) is for
veterans and their immediate family (spouse, unremarried surviving spouse,
child, or stepchild) who are in need of emergency financial assistance.
Assistance is granted one time only and average award amounts vary.
Emergency financial assistance includes, but is not limited
to, emergency or temporary housing and related housing expenses, such as
expenses for utilities, insurance, house repairs; mortgage or rent assistance;
emergency medical or dental expenses; and emergency transportation expenses.
