Military Injury Relief Fund (MIRF)

The Military Injury Relief Fund (MIRF) is a program that provides a one time payment each year to veterans of Iraq and/or Afghanistan who sustained injury or disease while serving in the combat area. The payment is tax free, and varies year to year. The program runs from July 1 through June 30 of each year. Applicants must complete an entire package the first year; once the initial application is approved, subsequent applications are much simpler.
