The First Responders Childrens Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund has stepped up and is providing financial grants to first responder families in need. The COVID-19 Response Fund is specifically designed to assist first responders in meeting their financial obligations by providing financial support to families enduring financial hardships due to tragic or unforeseen circumstances. This is not a loan, but a grant to support first responder families. The Fund has generously offered to assist those first responders who have experienced financial setbacks as a result of the challenges associated with CV-19. This program includes lost income due to the loss of outside/secondary employment or spousal support. Eligible for grants are all first responders, including police, fire, EMTs and ambulance personnel, including volunteers. The FRCF is providing grants up to $1000.00 to first responders who have lost income and are facing financial difficulty. Only one award per household.
Visit the FRCF website to learn more about this generous program. For general inquiries please contact Info@1stRCF.org.
Please pass along to your members and those who may be going through financial difficulties. Thank you and be safe.
