Post 9/11 veterans in Tennessee are getting financial help for education from the state's Helping Heroes grant program.  A new report from
the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury finds that 1,325 veterans have received more than $3.1 million in grant money from 2008-2013.

The Helping Heroes grant program provides post secondary education financial assistance to Tennessee citizens who are decorated post-9/11 veterans.  Helping Heroes awards total either $500 or $1,000 per student per semester (according to part-time or full-time status), as long as the student passes his or her courses. The grants are funded through the state‚Äôs system of lottery-funded scholarships.
