Activity Grants for Kids of Deployed Guard and Reserve Members

Are you or your spouse a deployed National Guard or Reserve person?  Well, I have a great program to tell you about.  A group called Our Military Kids provides grants for children ages 3 to 12th grade to participate in sports, cultural arts, tutoring, and other similar programs.  Application is easy!  You can download the application form, fill it out, and send it in with the necessary other information (copy of birth certificate or ID card, program information and deployment orders.)  There is a $500 limit per grant, but grants are available for each child in the family, and a child may receive two grants during a single deployment if the deployment is over 365 days long and other criteria are met.

This is a remarkable program that can really help your family cope with deployment by providing quality activities without adding extra expenses.  Thanks, Our Military Kids, for your support of the National Guard and Reserves.
