Frequently Asked Questions

To assist those who are interested in applying for financial assistance, the following questions may help you decide whether to apply and what you can expect if you apply.

 1 > Can an individual apply directly to the Foundation for financial assistance?

Yes, you may apply directly. Anyone interested in receiving financial assistance must fill out an application and submit it and other required documents to the Foundation.

 2 > Is there a deadline to submit the application?

No.  Applications are taken on an on-going basis. However, decisions about funding are made at meetings of the Foundation Board of Directors.

3 > How long will it take to review my application?

If your application is complete, we anticipate that this process will no more than two weeks from the date of receipt of your application. If your application is incomplete, it may be necessary to contact you to gather additional information, which may delay this process.  

4 > If I am approved for assistance, when will I receive the funds?

Once you have been approved for funding, you will need to complete some additional paperwork and send it back to us. The paperwork indicates the provider you have chosen and the specifics of the good or service to be provided. The provider will then receive an authorization to provide the good or service. The provider must submit an invoice to us for the good or service rendered. Upon receipt, it will take approximately 7 to 10 days to issue a check for the funds. The length of the process will depend on how quickly the paperwork is returned to us, and how quickly you and the provider you've chosen are able to coordinate.

5 > Will the check be made out to me or to the provider?

Unless otherwise approved by the Foundation Board, the check will be made out to the provider. Should you receive the funding directly, you will need to determine the legal effects of receipt of financial assistance from the Foundation on other benefits.
