Description:

 

THERE ARE 3 MAIN PROGRAMS AT WVFV WITH EQUIPMENT GRANTS RANGING

FROM $1000 - $8000 WITH RARE EXCEPTIONS.

 

APPLICATION

 

1. Equipping Veteran-Owned Small Businesses

This WVFV program provides critical new or used equipment (adapted to accommodate injuries if needed) to returning veterans who are starting a non-farming business.

 

2. Equipping Injured Veteran-Farmers

This WVFV program provides agricultural equipment (tractors, fencing, farm equipment) to America's veterans who are starting farms or ranches. Working closely with the Farmer Veteran Coalition and AgrAbility chapters around the country, Work Vessels for Vets identifies needed farm equipment and any modifications required to adapt equipment for combat injuries.

 

3. Equipping Nonprofit Programs

Knowing that “start-up” nonprofits need equipment too, WVFV awards equipment to equine therapy programs and veteran training programs, boats for therapeutic fishing programs, electronics to programs for vets with PTSD, and other “vessels” for nonprofits to help meet their missions to give back to fellow veterans.
