Mission of the Emergency Workforce Support fund is to support hospice workforce needs in the wake of a natural disaster. Examples of support could include post event funding for a hospice staff member’s childcare, shelter, groceries, etc.
When a natural disaster occurs, NHPCO provider members are eligible to apply for support of their hospice workforce. Induvial hospice staff may apply for support only through their organization.
Levels of award will be determined on a case by case basis, however, maximum amounts are not to exceed:Individual award – Up to $1,000
Provider award – up to $5,000
Donate online to support this important work. It’s not always possible to know when a disaster may strike, but donations made now ensure that NHF can provide support to hospice and palliative care providers and their staff when it is needed most.
