Temporary Financial Assistance
Temporary Financial Assistance is the landmark program of The American
Legion. Begun in 1925 as a form of
direct aid to children, the TFA program is still unique in the social work field
Through TFA, veterans can call upon The American Legion to lend a hand in
providing cash assistance to help meet the basic needs of their children
when it is established there are no other resources available to provide the
required assistance. These payments, as the name of the program implies, are
“temporary” and this cash assistance is in the form of a grant.
Payments from the program may be made to, or on behalf of, the family for a
variety of expenses necessary to maintain the health and welfare of the children
