Disable American Veterans (DAV)


DAV is currently accepting applications for aid through our COVID-19 Unemployment Relief program. If you are a veteran who has lost employment due to COVID-19, you can learn more and apply at dav.org/covidrelief.

Our COVID-19 Unemployment Relief program was established to provide assistance to service-connected disabled veterans who have lost employment as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, including veterans who are self-employed as contractors or small business owners. This critical aid is meant to help veterans pay bills, obtain food and provide for their families during this challenging time.

DAV will also continue to sponsor virtual job fairs to connect veterans with employers on a local and national level — learn more at jobs.dav.org. And if you need assistance with VA claims or any other information about your veterans benefits, please visit benefitsquestions.org to get in touch with a DAV benefits counselor. You can also speak to a service officer Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST by calling 1-888-604-0234.
