S.F. No. 1316 - Modifying Uses of Support Our Troops Account Money
Author: Senator Andrew R. Lang
Prepared By: Priyanka Premo, Senate Counsel (651/296-3914)
Date: March 1, 2017


Section 1 clarifies eligibility for individuals seeking grants through the Support Our Troops account and increases the maximum grant amount from $2,000 to $4,000.

This bill states that current members of the Minnesota National Guard or a reserve unit must be in good standing and that discharged service members must have served honorably. An eligible individual no longer needs to demonstrate that the current financial need is directly related to his or her service.
