Given the recent military developments abroad, many brave Hoosier men and women who are serving or have served our country may be in need and searching for answers to complicated questions.
Indiana Senate Republicans are committed to supporting active-duty military personnel, as well as Hoosier veterans and encourage those who may be struggling to contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs for help.

At the state level, the Indiana General Assembly recently expanded eligibility for the Military Family Relief Fund (MFRF). The MFRF is designed to assist Hoosier veterans and their legal dependents that are experiencing financial hardships. This emergency grant may also be used for needs such as housing, utilities, food, medical services and basic transportation (car payments, insurance, and basic emergency car repair).
Please remember to reach out to family members and friends who are currently serving or who have served. We remain a free and democratic state because of their service and sacrifice.
