In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize now more than ever that CAF members and their families may require financial support for basic needs.  The Support Our Troops (SOT) team has been working diligently and has established a COVID-19 Emergency Grant.  This Grant will provide an immediate solution of modest support to members and their families during this pandemic. 

Please see the link below for the COVID 19 Emergency Grant Form in Both Official languages.  This form requires limited information and allows for the maximum grant amount to be quickly given to the member to address basic needs.  For the COVID-19 Emergency Grant, it is the only form that is required.
