HARRISBURG – Senate Bill 1076, which extends the Military Family Relief Assistance Program, has been signed into law. Created in 2005, the program provides grants up to $3,500 to PA service members and their families in need. The program was to expire at the end of 2020. It offers grants to service members who experienced a sudden loss of income or assets as a result of military service; emergency child care needs; and natural or man-made disasters resulting in the need for food, shelter, and other necessities. Funding has mostly been donated by generous taxpayers filing a PA personal income tax return and voluntarily checking off a box for the program. It also receives private donations.
