The origianl "Yellow Ribbon" as I understand it, was set up by the VA after 9/11 allowing colleges, universites and other degree-granting schools to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the amounts payable under the 9/11 bill.
The instituation can contribute a specified amount of those expenses and the VA will match up to but not exceeding 50% of the difference.
There are elibilbility requirements, service dates, length of service and types of discharge if discharged.

Counties & cities have gone a bit further called "Beyond the Yellow Ribbon". The enitity (city or county) forms a 501(C)(3) non profit and assists veterans with nearly every thing possible. Some of the services provided include: Wheel chair, walkers, appartment search, delivery of grocery items to the home (delivery fees waved), help with employment search.

To find if you're eligilble google "Yellow Ribbon (city or county name) MN" make sure you are reading the actual city or county site, there you will find contacts and alot of information.
