State Organization Looks to Help 530 Veterans Between Now and May 30th

Posted by wlpo on April 21, 2016

An organization that helps veterans in Illinois has started a new campaign that could make them help more than 13 per day.

The Illinois Warrior Assistance Program started their “530 by 5/30” initiative Tuesday. This means the group is giving themselves until May 30th to assist 530 veterans with any number of emotional, medical, or legal challenges relating to their time in the service.

There are several qualifications for the program such as: being under 65, having a minimum 180 days of active duty service, and living in Illinois. If you aren’t eligible, the group will still provide you a source for follow-up care.

The Illinois Warrior Assistance Program is a confidential program provided by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. You can learn more about IWAP by clicking here.
