Help With Loss of Wages from NVFC for Volunteers
The National Volunteer Fire Council has expanded the Volunteer Firefighter Support Fund to allow eligible responders who have suffered an involuntary loss of wages in excess of $500 as a result of COVID-19 to apply for a $350 stipend to help meet essential needs.
To be eligible to apply under the expanded criteria, applicants must be an NVFC member or a member of an eligible state association (which Maryland is a member and Dave Lewis and Eric Bernard serve as our two volunteer Maryland Directors), be an active volunteer firefighter, rescue worker, or EMS provider; and have incurred an involuntary loss of wages in excess of $500 as a result of COVID-19.
Applications for assistance must be received by the NVFC within 60 days of when the lost wages occurred. One-time stipends of $350 will be provided to eligible responders as funds allow. View full criteria and apply for support at www.nvfc.org/support-fund.
Please apply if you need it!
Be well and stay safe!
