American Gold Star Manor
Housing Assistance Grant
At American Gold Star Manor, one of our primary goals is to ensure housing stability for Gold Star parents. As part of this work, we developed the American Gold Star Manor Housing Assistance Grant to provide temporary financial housing support for Gold Star parents through short-term rental and mortgage assistance.
Grants will be awarded by the Manor beginning December 2021 and will cover three months of rent or mortgage payments, not to exceed $5,000.
The 2021 Application Deadline was October 31, 2021
