Emergency financial assistance depends on the availability of funds and applicant eligibility. Funding is not guaranteed. Applicants should allow at least 14 business days for HemoAware to process their request.
Assistance is limited to a maximum of $1,500 per rolling calendar year, per family being available for emergency financial assistance. In the presence of special circumstances, HemoAware will review exceptional requests.
HemoAware cannot provide funding directly to the individual applicant(s). Disbursements will be made directly to vendors identified in the application that have been verified by HemoAware. In the case of a request for food, the requesting staff person will facilitate expenditure without giving cash directly to the client.
Once HemoAware receives the assistance request, the application will be sent to the HemoAware Board of Directors for review. The board will review (in-person or via conference call) the financial assistance request within one week of receipt and submit a majority-vote recommendation.
The Fundraising Development Manager will notify the applicant about the decision within two business days of the committee meeting via email or phone communications. In most cases, approved applicants can expect a total of 2 to 4 weeks for the entire process and payment to be submitted.
