Under this program, members can qualify for assistance with dues or costs incurred as a result of a catastrophic event.

2: A member for minimum 1 year
3: A member is allowed one claim per year
4: A member is allowed one claim per hardship (lifetime)
5: Claims must be made within 1 year of disaster/hardship
6: A member can fall in arrears after application but must be a member at the time of award.
7: A member must have no unpaid fines or assessments
1: A completed application
2: All applicants must submit an itemized list of supporting documentation
Examples of documentation are workers compensation or disability award with dates, photos, insurance claims.
Doctor notes will be mandatory to process any tier 2 or 3 applications.
*All disbursements are subject to availability of funds and committee approval. The committee reserves the ability to request addition funding from the EASRCC executive Board for tier 3 applications with special circumstances. Appeals of any assistance denial must be submitted in writing within thirty (30) days of the date of the Member Assistance Program decision. Appeals will be decided by a designated subcommittee of the Member Assistance Program Committee.
