The NCQHA Crisis Fund is a member benefit. The purpose of the Crisis Fund is to provide urgent financial assistance to an individual who has experienced a disaster or emergency that has left the recipient in a state of financial, physical or emotional distress. In order to receive assistance from the NCQHA Crisis Fund, the recipient must be: a) a current and continuous member of NCQHA for the past three years, and, b) have made a meaningful contribution to the association and/or the equine industry.
Crisis Fund Application forms are available on the NCQHA website.
Members of the Finance Committee will receive a copy of the completed “Application for Assistance” form prior to the distribution of any funds or granting of services.
The Committee will review and verify eligibility of the individual requesting assistance, and determine the severity of the disaster, hardship or illness.
The Committee will review the guidelines and determine the monetary support or services to be granted to the recipient. However, in those circumstances where the recipient’s need exceeds $1000.00, the committee will present their recommendation to the Board of Directors for final approval.
The Committee may request additional and more detailed information from the requestor in circumstances where the recipient requires assistance greater than $1000.00 or for an extended period of time.
