The Emergency Assistance program is designed to provide emergency relief for individuals with bleeding disorder and their families.
The intent of the program is providing temporary help to families/ individuals that find themselves in hardship and need assistance with emergency medical treatment, supplies, assistance during a hospital stay, or assistance with travel for medical attention. The application process requires a completed application, a description of the need, verification of Bleeding Disorder, and verification of need. Funding is limited to $1000 per individual with a bleeding disorder per 12-month period (January to December). Funding is divided into two categories: $500 to include emergency medical treatment and supplies, assistance for travel for medical attention and hospital stays, and assistance in case of family illness and death. The balance ($500) is for COVID-19 related expenses. Special requests that do not fit within the categories listed above require special approval from PNWBD Executive Committee and are rarely approved. Persons requesting assistance that would exceed the $1000 per individual annual limit requires special approval from PNWBD Executive Committee.
