Since 1993, the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs has provided over 90 grants annually to legislatively selected organizations in Minnesota whose mission and purpose is to assist Veterans, and their families.
In 2016, with funds made possible from the Minnesota Support Our Troops License Plate Program, MDVA expanded the grant program and opened opportunities to other organizations with the same purpose.
