There is no guarantee for Emergency Assistance, as the veteran must meet certain criteria.


We will also need a copy of your discharge paper (DD214). A veteran must serve at least one day during war time or 24 months peacetime. Must have honorable discharge or general under honorable conditions (medical or hardship discharge only with general discharge, any other reason of discharge may not be accepted). Must also be a permanent resident of Lake County and meet certain financial guidelines.
