Honorably discharged veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces having served a minimum of 24 months (total) after September 11, 2001, are eligible to apply. Applications with less than 24 months of service due to extenuating circumstances or with various characters of discharge will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Housing is not provided.
