ATTENTION:   WILDFIRE DISASTER RELIEF FOR OREGON VETERANS/SURVIVING SPOUSES

 

The DAV National Service Office in Portland has obtained drafts (checks) to be sent out to veterans/surviving spouses that have been impacted by the wildfires in Oregon.  The drafts are up to $1,000 per household, regardless if it’s a multiple veteran household.

 

To receive a draft PLEASE have the participant follow these steps:

 

  1. Email dav.vbaport@va.gov and state WILDFIRE RELIEF in the subject line.

 

  1. We need the full name of the veteran/surviving spouse.

 

  1. Their address that has been affected.

 

  1. An address they can receive the draft at.

 

  1. Their phone number and/or email address.

 

  1. Proof of veteran status.  Various things will work for this, the veteran DOES NOT need to be in receipt of any VA benefits.  Examples:  DDF 214, VA rating sheet, driver’s license with "veteran”  annotation, etc.

 

  1. Are they requesting for food and clothing only OR did they have to evacuate/pay for lodging?  Please include as much proof/verification to make this as easy as possible.
