Jason LeVecke draws from two decades of executive leadership experience and strategic planning as the managing director of BIIC Solutions based in California. Beyond his corporate responsibilities, Jason LeVecke belongs to the American Legion. The organization operates as the country’s largest provider of wartime veteran’s services and administers programs such as the Temporary Financial Assistance (TFA) program.

The program provides temporary financial assistance in the form of cash grants to minor children of American Legion members or current active duty members. Families may use grant funds to cover expenses required to maintain a stable environment for children, such the cost of food, shelter, utilities, and health care. The American Legion implemented the TFA alongside its launch, making it one of the organization’s longest-running programs.
In order to qualify for a grant, minor children must be under the age of 17 and be either a biological child, stepchild, or legal ward of an American Legion or current active duty Armed Forces member. The TFA defines active duty status as a US Armed Forces personnel currently serving under Title 10 of the United States Code. Families determined to be in need after a complete investigation will receive a one-time, non-repayable grant of $1,500.
