My husband is 100% disabled vet. We lost our Household good Moving financial “privileges” because we didn’t find a home within a year of him being medically retired ( we were overseas in Germany when he was released from duty a full year before we expected to be) . We were told we had one year to find a home to have our household goods shipped to before we would have to pay out of pocket. After transitions and treatment centers we finally found a home 2 years later. We have been paying to keep our things in storage a facility on the other side of the US where our items were shipped because we can’t afford the $7000 it will cost to have it all shipped here. The cost per month for storage is becoming too much. Who can we reach out to in an effort to reinstate household good moving benefits? We have saved up for two years to get our things. We have most of the money now, but I work for a non profit and due to COVID-19 we may have to dip into that fund in order to supplement the loss of income. Even a partial grant would help tremendously but we can’t find any resources online. It almost seems like this hasn’t happened to anyone else(?)

I am a Desert Storm war veteran with PTSD and I was talking to my psychologist about getting better PTSD treatment. Through our conversation, we came up with me moving out of state.
With that I have have done the figures and I will have enough to do the actual moving of my home where I stay, but I will need rental assistance to move near Ft, Stewart, Ga. Are any programs to help?

I’m in the same situation. I was offered a position to work in AZ, and will be relocating from WV. I am not due to start until August, but will need all of the help that I can get. Is there a way to get relocation assistance if you have proof of promises employment? I have the funds to get a place to stay, but it’s the move that is haunting me right now, because if I spend it on the move, I will not have the funds to obtain housing.

I just went through a horrible divorce that left me with almost nothing. I can’t afford to live in the state I live in now. I have an amazing job offer but no money to help with moving expenses. Is there anything available to help with relocation if it’s for a great financial opportunity? Thank you!

I am currently living in the Bay Area. I recently just got a job offer up at Sacramento so it would be quite difficult for me to move there since I probably won’t have a pay check for at least another month. Are there any places somewhere I can stay up at Sacramento four nights a week until I can officially get settled in? I was thinking this would be my plan. I start work up there might be in about a month. Then I needed a place to sleep Monday to Friday. Then I go home to the Bay Area on weekends just to wrap things up before my big move. When I get my first big pay check, I can officially be able to afford to find a place to live.

James, you may want to look at the VA’s Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Service Manual (M28R) which has information about employment and relocation services, or call your local VA benefits office for more help. https://www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/contact_rlc_info.asp
