The pandemic hit us hard in 2020, and many of us continue to feel the effects of lost wages, sick family members, and bills that pile up due to financial hardships. Sharp Professional Nurses Network leaders developed this hardship fund to offer our fellow nurses some needed assistance.
The SPNN Hardship Fund is here to provide financial support in the form of grants of up to $750.00 to members in good standing who are experiencing an immediate, severe, and temporary financial hardship due to an emergency, such as a natural disaster, immediate family crisis, or acute illness or injury.
If you need help for a hardship experienced in 2020, we can accept applications for those hardships that might no longer be considered immediate. All applications related to events between March 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020, will need to be submitted by no later than November 1, 2021, for consideration.
For applications for any other time during 2021, please submit by the end of this year.
Please email SPNNhardshipfund@unacuhcp.org or call (619) 280-5401 to request an application form. Complete and return the form in the manner listed on the form.
All applications will be kept confidential.
