Financial Assistance application

The Blaine County Charitable Fund provides assistance to individuals living and/or working in Blaine County who are experiencing financial hardshaip due to an unanticipated crisis.

 

  • To apply for a direct aid grant, applicants must: Have lived/worked in Blaine County for a period of at least one year, currently live and/or work full-time in Blaine County, and document the financial hardship related to an unanticipated crisis.

  • Examples of crisis may include (but may not limited to): terminal illness or death, severe illness and/or urgent medical care, pandemic and natural disaster.

  • At this time, priority is given during this time to crisis related to the COVID-19 pandemic and those who have taken initial steps to address their financial crisis.

  • Applicants should be 18 years of age or older. If a financial crisis is due to the illness or injury of a child, the “applicant” is the child’s parent or legal guardian. 

  • Grant funds may not be used for funerals, burial expenses, or elective procedures. 

  • We encourage you to consider expenses for a one-month period when completing your application.

  • The BCCF may fund all, part, or none of your request. 

  • The BCCF may, at its sole discretion, choose to pay applicant expenses directly. 

  • The BCCF provides one-time assistance only.  Only in rare circumstances are exceptions made. If you have received a grant from the BCCF in the past, please contact us before submitting another application.

  • Applications are reviewed by the BCCF Board of Directors monthly, but during the COVID-19 pandemic the board will attempt weekly review. This review typically (though not always) occurs on the first Wednesday of each month, or the Wednesday of each week during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Applications are due the last day of the prior week/month for consideration. (i.e. submit application by Friday to be reviewed the following Wednesday or by December 31st for review in January). 

  • Please include physician documentation, paystubs, and relevant bills with application.
