The COVID-19 pandemic has presented significant hardships to our membership, especially those with already limited financial stability. When a crisis impacts “everyone” – the most marginalized become even more vulnerable in so many different ways. SCI/D not only puts us at greater risk to the coronavirus but also for other health issues and the disruption of daily life, including the ability to access essential services and supplies.
To support our members during these difficult times, the Chapter President and Board of Directors created the Member COVID-19 Relief Grant. Individual member grants will be provided up to $500. This grant initiative demonstrates the Chapter’s strong solidarity by immediately and directly providing aid to its members in need. This grant can be applied and used by Chapter members who have been negatively affected by the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic needing financial assistance with food insecurity, housing, health care, and other basic living expenses.
To be eligible for this grant, you must be a Chapter member in good standing and not have previously applied for this grant. Members should consider applying if they clearly, and without question, need financial assistance. This will ensure Grant funds can be maximized by helping those encountering the greatest hardships.
Chapter President Michael Negrete and the complete Board of Directors genuinely care about your health and well-being. It is our hope the efforts put behind this relief grant will help lighten a few of the difficulties borne by some of our members.
