Guidelines for Disbursement of Resources:
1. All requests for financial aid from the Resource Fund will be submitted and initially evaluated by the Board of Directors. The
process can take up to 1 month from receipt of a completed request form.
2. All requests will be evaluated and determined by the BOD provided financial aid is to meet basic necessities (food,
immediate lodging, clothing or urgent medical). Whenever possible, checks will be written directly to a provider (i.e.
landlord, utility companies, etc.) rather than the individual requesting assistance.
3. Financial aid is seen as a one-time gift. A recipient may not receive aid on a regular basis. There may be extraordinary
circumstances where a recipient receives a gift for a second time (what qualifies as extraordinary circumstances will be
determined by the BOD).
4. Financial aid is a gift not a loan. A recipient is not obligated to return or “pay back” any financial assistance provided.
