    Statement from VA Secretary Denis McDonough on the signing of the PACT Act

    August 10, 2022


    “The PACT Act is a historic new law that will help VA deliver for millions of Veterans — and their survivors — by empowering us to presumptively provide care and benefits to Vets suffering from more than 20 toxic exposure-related conditions. It will also bring generations of Veterans into VA health care, which will improve Veteran health outcomes across the board.

    “We at VA are ready to implement the PACT Act and deliver for toxic-exposed Veterans and their survivors. If you think you might be eligible for PACT Act benefits, here’s what you need to know:


    • You can apply for PACT Act-related benefits now by filing a claim at VA.



    • As President Biden announced at the bill signing, we are making all 23 presumptive conditions in the PACT Act eligible for benefits effective today, August 10.



    • You can learn more about the PACT Act by visiting VA.gov/PACT or calling 1-800-MY-VA-411.


    “Thank you to all of the Veterans, survivors and family members who fought tirelessly to make this day possible, and thank you to President Biden for keeping our nation’s promise to those who served. We at VA will stop at nothing to make sure that every Veteran and every survivor gets the PACT Act-related care and benefits they deserve.”

    FEMA Individual Assistance is available to renters, including students, as well as homeowners. Federal grants can help pay for temporary housing. The initial rental grant is for a 1-month or 2-month period and can be reviewed for further assistance.

    Renters may also qualify for a grant under FEMA’s Other Needs Assistance program for uninsured essential personal property losses and other disaster-related expenses. These may include:


    • Replacement or repair of necessary personal property, such as furniture, appliances, clothing, textbooks, or school supplies

    • Replacement or repair of tools and other job-related equipment required by the self-employed

    • Primary vehicles

    • Uninsured or out-of-pocket medical, dental, childcare, moving and storage expenses

It’s important to submit the loan application as soon as possible. If your application is approved, you do not have to accept the loan but failure to return the application may disqualify you from other possible FEMA assistance.
