Removes the provision that limits to three years the time during which an Indiana qualified service member or a dependent is eligible to receive assistance from the military family relief fund. Gives priority to Indiana qualified service members or dependents who have never received a grant from the military family relief fund. Requires the veterans' affairs commission, subject to the approval of the budget agency, to set a maximum total dollar amount of grants that may be expended in a state fiscal year.
