Applying for CHC funding is easy. Get help today for immediate needs like housing assistance.
The Colleagues Helping Colleagues Fund provides funding specifically for losses sustained in the course of a natural disaster such as flood, fire, hurricane, earthquake, tornado, etc. Award amounts vary but are typically not larger than $1,000. Awards are determined based on need, the number of applicants, and available funding levels.
To be eligible, you must be an employee of a public broadcasting station and be able to substantiate disaster related losses/expenses sustained that, to the best of your knowledge, are not covered by private insurance or other government programs.
The application process is simple and decisions are normally made quickly. CHC funds may cover, but are not limited to, lodging, food, transportation, medical care and other identified expenses not covered or reimbursed by insurance. Requests for immediate essentials that allow you to stabilize your situation will be prioritized.
** Please note that we’re experiencing such a high volume of requests that it may be difficult to fund some worthy applicants **
