The purpose of the TFAC Financial Assistance Fund is to provide TFAC members with up to $200 per budgetary year in financial assistance. This is a pilot project to be run during the COVID pandemic, in order to support members. This fund will be adjudicated twice: June 30th 2021 and September 31st 2021. Following the completion of the pilot project, the TFAC membership can discuss the potential continuation of the fund.
Who is eligible? If you are a woman, trans, non-binary, and/or gender non-conforming member of CUPE 3903 you are a member of TFAC.
Maximum Award: Each TFAC member is eligible to receive a maximum of $200 per budgetary year. The TFAC Financial Assistance Fund has a pool of $5000; $2500 will be allotted to each adjudication cycle and dispersed among the applicants. If applicants do not receive the full $200 in the first adjudication cycle, they may apply again for the remainder but priority will be given to first time applicants.
