Support & Emergency Grants

Which Grant Is Right For You?​

Thank you for reaching out to NOMV for support.

We know that this is an important and difficult step for you to take. The NOMV Resource Program provides resources and/or financial support in three main ways.

  1. Support Grants are for individuals who are working or have worked in the veterinary field in the last six months or to veterinary students who are currently enrolled in a veterinary or veterinary technician program who are going through a crisis;
  2. Emergency Grants are for veterinary practices who are struggling to remain open or reopen during or after a natural disaster;
  3. NOMV’s List is a searchable database of peer-recommended resources that have been vetted by mental health professionals.

Grant applications will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete and applicants will hear back from the program committee or NOMV staff within two weeks of submission. Due to a high volume of applications, not all applicants will receive the amount of financial assistance requested in their application, but the committee does provide additional, non-financial resources whenever possible.

Requirements for all grant recipients include, but are not limited to: proof of payment to the approved expense/vendor, a third-party ID verification, and employment/enrollment verification.

NOMV Individual Support Grant

These grants are designated to help individuals (including students) in the veterinary field who need financial or other support up to $1,000.

So this is the right grant if you are applying for:

  • Help for an individual.

AND

  • That individual is, has been, or will be working in the veterinary field.

OR

  • That individual is enrolled in a veterinary or vet tech program at a college or university.

This grant cannot be used to pay for student loans or tuition but can be used for many other things, including: groceries, rent, utilities, and current medical bills. Applicants for this grant also can be eligible for resources including relief staffing, CE help, and financial planning.

NOMV Veterinary Practice Emergency Grant

These grants are designated for the purpose of keeping vet med businesses open following the impact of a natural disaster.

So this is the right grant if you are applying for:

  • Help for a business in the veterinary field.

AND

  • Your business has been affected and is at risk of closing its doors due to a pandemic, wildfire, or other natural disaster.

This grant is limited to $5,000 per practice, except for help towards covid-19 related losses which can only be funded up to $1,000.
