Individuals who have not received a compensation award can request a cash grant for an emergency situation. If you need to pay a utility bill, if you need to see a dentist or doctor, if you can’t pay your rent this month—each of these is an emergency situation for which you can apply for a grant of up to $1,000 in a 12-month period. To apply for an Emergency Grant, complete the online application and upload your supporting documents. Once you have completed your application and provided your supporting documents, we will review your application and let you know within 3 business days* if you have been awarded a grant. All grants will be paid directly to the service provider.
*Due to the CoVid-19 pandemic responses may take more than 3 business days. Thank you for your understanding.
