You find yourself unemployed with little or no notice.
Your partner abruptly leaves the relationship.
Your only transportation has stopped working and needs major repairs…
You suddenly face a costly, major medical issue…
Small financial grants of around $500 are available to help ease a specific crisis, such as an inoperable vehicle, utilities in threat of termination, or an eviction notice. The crisis must be caused by a qualifying emergency event. A qualifying emergency event could be:
- Company downsizes
- Personal injury due to an accident that leads to income loss
- Relocation due to domestic violence
- Unexpected illness or extended time not covered by Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
To qualify, you must be at 300% of the federal poverty income guidelines.
