    Disabled American Veterans (DAV) is offering cash grants of up to $250 for disabled veterans affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Service-connected disabled veterans who have lost employment as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic are eligible. This includes veterans who are self-employed as contractors or small business owners.

    You can apply for the grant online by providing proof of your status as a service-connected disabled veteran and proof of unemployment or financial need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    You should submit a copy of your VA identification card showing your service connection or any other official VA document showing your service connected disability status. If you don’t have a VA identification card, you can download a copy of your disability documentation from the VA’s eBenefits website.

    To verify your hardship, you should submit some proof of unemployment or lost income. This could be a letter from your employer indicating your termination or furlough status or proof that you have applied for, or are receiving, unemployment benefits. If you are self-employed you need to submit some type of proof of lost income.

    You do not need to be a DAV member to receive this grant.

    DAV says that the cash grants will be distributed in check form and should arrive within two weeks the date your application is approved.

    For more information, visit the DAV website.

    Greetings Professionals,

    As if things aren't bad enough, I’ve been recently informed by Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and General Services Administration (GSA) that a new FAKE website is circulating that looks just like the www.sam.gov and http://login.gov/ webpage but IT IS NOT! The FAKE webpage's address is https://sam-gov.org

    PLEASE DO NOT ENTER YOUR INFORMATION INTO THIS SITE, IT IS A FAKE PORTAL!

    The GSA is investigating the site and the situation as I write this.

    As a reminder, if an email or website DOES NOT end in .gov or .mil or .edu; the site is NOT regulated; be sure to double check before you click!

    If you are ever unsure, because these sites/emails can look very REAL, feel free to forward the email to a legitimate resource for further confirmation.

    Take care and be safe...
