OFCP is working hard to anticipate and support our members in accessing services, PPE and other supports as we all navigate through the COVID 19 pandemic and the issues that face people with disabilities.
As you know, we developed funding opportunities like the LEAF Life Emergency Action Fund, assisting members to purchase food, supplements, PPE and cleaning supplies to help address scarce inventory and address higher costs for these items. We then established the Life Enriching Education Fund, assisting members in addressing barriers to accessing supports related to online or in person schooling. Both have been so well received and members have told us how instrumental these funds were in helping them and their families.
In that spirit of anticipating where future barriers may lie, we are opening a new funding opportunity to assist our members in accessing the vaccine, if they choose to do so. This fund is called the COVID Vaccine Support Fund. The purpose of this fund is to provide one time assistance to help members cover additional expenses related to costs associated with receiving the vaccine. These eligible expenses include but are but not limited to transportation costs, attendant services, parking, or other related costs.
Our members will be able to access up to $200.00 per application, beginning March 15th, 2021, until the funds are utilized. For more information and instructions on how to access the funds, see link below.
