MFA was established in 2005 to help members of Louisiana National Guard and Louisiana Military Reserves and their families address financial hardships they may encounter when they are placed on active-duty status.
MFA can pay for a variety of items for those who qualify, such as food, housing, medical expenses, auto repair, and more.
MFA is funded by private donations from individuals and corporations. All donations are tax deductible. MFA can pay up to $10,000 for one claim per active-duty order in a twelve (12) month period.
Minimum qualifications include:
- Guardsmen and Reservists must have been placed on active-duty status
for more than thirty (30) consecutive days since September 11, 2001.
- Immediate family members of eligible military personnel may
apply on behalf of their loved one.
- Completed applications must be accompanied by supporting documentation
and must be filed no later than six (6) months after returning from active-duty.
