As with any battle we fight, we will be most successful when we work together. AFA has formed the COVID-19 Airman’s Assistance Fund (CAAF). With a mission to take care of our Airmen and Guardians of the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Space Force, USAF veterans, and their families during these trying times, AFA’s COVID-19 Airman’s Assistance Fund will:
- Provide up to $500 in emergency assistance grants to Airmen and their families for essentials such as groceries, bill pay, and medical needs
- Provide up to $1,000 in grants to Air Force First Sergeants to support their efforts to maintain the morale and welfare of the enlisted members in their squadron
The Air Force Association has been supporting our Airmen and their families before the Air Force was its own branch. We will continue to do all we can to take care of our Airmen, Guardians and their families. We are all in this together. Our Air Force, and our nation, will come out on top and we will be stronger together.
All 2020 CAAF Grants have been awarded. Please check back for information on the 2021 Grant Cycle.
CAAF In Action
Because of generous supporters like you, AFA's CAAF has helped to relieve near-term hardship to our Air and Space Forces when they need it most. See your support in action.
AFA's CAAF provided hygiene essentials to 30 AFROTC cadets participating in Field Training that could not afford the items due to recent job loss as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Words from HQ AFROTC:
On behalf of the cadets and HQ AFROTC, we would like to say THANK YOU! The kits were distributed to cadets in QMT (Quarantine Management Team), who could not go anywhere under isolation. They enjoyed the kits, as many of them had run out of personal hygiene items by the time they entered quarantine. Copies of the letter from Lt Gen (Ret) Wright were also distributed with the kits, which they also enjoyed reading/receiving.
