work to support the family. The spouse received a grant for $3,500.00. • A service member from Allegheny County was experiencing temporary financial difficulties as a result of major vehicle repairs and a spouse that was temporarily unable to work due to medical complications. Assistance was needed to help the family until they could return to financial stability. The service member received a grant for $2,518.73. Since the program began in 2006, more than $1.6 million has been donated by individuals filing their Pennsylvania personal income tax returns and through private donations. “If you need assistance and think you qualify for a grant, you really should apply for this valuable benefit. I also encourage others to help us spread the word,” said Carrelli. Members of the armed forces who are residents of Pennsylvania are eligible to apply for assistance while they are serving on active duty for 30 or more consecutive days with the Army, Army Reserve, Navy, Navy Reserve, Air Force, Air Force Reserve, Marine Corps, Marine Corps Reserve, Coast Guard, Coast
Guard Reserve, or the Pennsylvania Army or Air National Guard. All members of the armed forces who were discharged for medical reasons are also eligible to apply for assistance for up to four years after a medical discharge. In addition, reserve component service members (including Pennsylvania National Guard members) and their families may be eligible for a grant for a period of up to three years after release from a qualifying active duty tour. The program also applies to certain family members of eligible service members who are Pennsylvania residents. Applicants must show that they have a direct and immediate financial need as a result of circumstances beyond their control. In addition to the check-off box on the Personal Income Tax form, contributions can be made directly by sending a check to the Military Family Relief Assistance Program, c/o Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, Bldg. 0-47 Fort Indiantown Gap, Annville, PA 17003. Donations are tax deductible to the extent authorized by federal law. To learn more about this program, visit www.mfrap.pa.gov.
