COVID-19 Emergency fund is a temporary program specifically to address loss of income/food insecurity/medication co pays during this pandemic.
The emergency cache of funds is limited to providing assistance if a family has food/medication availability issues for the next month specifically due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The program will be available 3/20 - 6/20 for now and longer if needed depending on funds available.
- A hospital professional worker must submit a referral describing the financial need.
- Patient or dependent must have a cystic fibrosis diagnosis
- Once referral is approved, an application link will be sent to the patient at the email address provided by you.
This Emergency COVID-19 Fund will address the need in our CF community to cover costs of food insecurity, loss of income, extensive medical and prescription co pays during this pandemic. This fund will not cover mortgage, rent, bills, etc. If the patient has had a 14 consecutive day hospital stay in the last calendar year and needs assistance with those expenses, please visit our Extended Hospital Stay Grant program for more information: https://clairesplacefoundation.org/programs/extended-hospital-stay-fund/
