Grant Qualifications

The Purple Heart Service Foundation prioritizes grants to organizations working to improve rehabilitation services for veterans suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), as well as its associated behavioral health problems—depression, alcohol and drug abuse, and suicide and suicide-related behaviors.

We award grants to programs that:

    • Study suicide among veterans with PTS and TBI, particularly those efforts attempting to determine the prevalence and underlying causal factors of TBI/PTS related suicides
    • Improve rehabilitation services to treat individuals with PTS and TBI injuries
    • Train and educate family members or other authorized representatives of veterans suffering from these issues
    • Provide rehabilitation through recreational programs and activities
    • Conduct research that brings a new perspective to TBI data and helps expand and advance our understanding of traumatic brain injury
    • Develop effective measures to reduce the incidence of suicide within our veteran and military populations
    • Non-political programs that enhance the lives of wounded and disabled veterans and their families
    • Programs that further the education and history of the Purple Heart Medal and Purple Heart medal recipients
    • Programs that further the education of the United States constitution and form of government
    • Open season for grant requests is July 1st through September 30th each year
    • The Purple Heart Foundation Board of Directors will approve an annual allocation of funds at each Annual Meeting in November. Additionally, they may decide to specify the type of grants to be approved for the coming year
