Veterans Creative Arts Festival Grants
The purpose of the Veterans Creative Arts Festival (VCAF) Grants is to aid in the well-being of veterans by introducing them to art therapy. If your unit or department hosts a local Veterans Creative Arts Festival or offers art therapy courses that feed into the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival, grant funds may be awarded for needs that contribute to these efforts.


  • The applicant must be an American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) entity – unit, district/county, or department.
  • Grants are awarded up to $2,500.
  • One grant per grantee in a 12-month period will be awarded.
  • Funds may not be used to reimburse expenses paid prior to grant approval.
