Brave Of Heart Fund
DescriptionThe Fund was established in partnership with the foundations of New York Life and Cigna to provide grants to eligible family members of frontline healthcare workers and healthcare volunteers who lost their lives because of COVID-19. The grants will provide basic and continuing financial support for common needs, such as funeral costs, medical care, counseling, food, educational expenses of children and other dependents currently in school, mortgage or rent payments, and immediate living expenses, as these family members manage the impact of the COVID crisis and begin to move forward. Two types of grants will be awarded: an initial grant of $15,000 to alleviate the cost of immediate needs related to funeral costs and other essential household expenses. A second grant of up to $60,000 may also be available for continuing needs and longer-term expenses for up to six months (subject to income eligibility and documentation of financial needs). In addition, through the program, Cigna behavioral health will provide emotional support and services, which are available to anyone facing challenges related to COVID-19 and include advice for coping. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
Contact information and additional details are available to members of the Society.
