2020 Grant Requests

The USO of Central & Southern Ohio is pleased to be able to support our local military units’ events and programs.

***PLEASE NOTE: As of our October 1, 2019, merger with USO Inc., our military grant program has changed. Please read all instructions carefully. Incomplete information will delay the processing of your request.* **

The USO of Central & Southern Ohio will provide one grant per unit per calendar year. As you complete the request, consider your unit events for the entire year. Please submit your request at least 30 days in advance of your program or event. If your event is less than 30 days out, we cannot guarantee we will be able to fulfill the grant. If it is an urgent need, please contact our office directly at 614-317-7906 or csostaff@uso.org.

The USO Military Grant is intended to provide additional support for morale, welfare and recreation activities in support of our military and their family members. Examples include food/beverage/catering or activities such as games or bounce houses for unit events, meeting or parties. Items *not * covered by the grant request include such things as speakers’ fees and awards or plaques. Because the demand for grants is so high, we cannot guarantee that your entire request will be fulfilled. Each request will be approved on a case-by-case basis.

Grants are available for units and organizations assigned to a base/armory or located in our geographic service area, which covers Ohio, Northern Kentucky and West Virginia. Eligible counties are listed at the bottom of the form.

Information regarding 2021 grants will be posted soon.
