Mission Blue Cap Grants for American Legion Posts

Post Commanders and Adjutants,

The American Legion National Executive Committee has authorized a grant program qualifying local American Legion Posts. Click the link below for an application.

The Mission Blue Post Assistance Program (PAP) grant is intended to assist posts whose revenue has been negatively impacted from the effects of the COVID-19 health crisis within the community, as well as any government-mandated restrictions. The funds distributed from this grant are to be exclusively used to meet financial responsibilities associated with maintaining post facilities and community presence. Grants are only approved to cover costs and fees associated with mortgage payments, rent, insurance premiums, and/or utilities. Recipient posts are prohibited from using funds to maintain or cover a loss of income from any registered post business (including but not limited to post bars, cantinas, restaurants, etc.) paying post employees, building upgrades or repairs, taxes, fines/fees/penalties, or funding post activities and programs. Posts who meet all the required criteria may receive up to $1,000.00 from the Mission Blue PAP fund. Department commanders/adjutants are encouraged to complete a Mission Blue PAP grant application on behalf of the post.

District Commanders please ensure your posts see this information.
For God and Country,

Ron Runyan
Department Adjutant
