Grant Description

Grants to USA individuals to support family members of healthcare workers and volunteers who died from the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Funding is intended to provide for basic and immediate expenses such as funeral costs, food, housing payments, medical care, counseling, educational expenses of children and other dependents currently in school, and living expenses.

There are two forms of grants that may be available. Applicants may be eligible for an initial grant to alleviate the cost of immediate needs related to funeral costs and other essential household expenses.

A second grant may also be available for continuing needs and longer-term expenses for up to six months, subject to income eligibility and documentation of financial need. This second grant is intended to help defray expenses such as housing, utilities, educational expenses of dependents currently in school, childcare, clothing, food, transportation, counseling, and medical expenses.

The exact amount of any grant will depend on a variety of factors including, without limitation, the applicant’s demonstration of financial need and availability of funds. The final determination of grant eligibility and amounts will be made by E4E Relief. Grants and grant amounts are not guaranteed and are subject to availability of funds remaining within the Fund.

Eligibility:

  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The intention of the Fund is to help meet the financial needs of the surviving family of an eligible healthcare worker who has lost their life from a cause related to COVID 19. Eligible family members include a spouse or domestic partner, a dependent child, or dependent parent. The intention is to prioritize the needs of the surviving spouse or domestic partner.

An “eligible healthcare worker” is a healthcare worker or healthcare volunteer who lived in the U.S. at the time of death and worked or volunteered in or for a licensed hospital, medical center or clinic, nursing home, medical transport vehicle, triage center, or other licensed medical facility, provider or setting, or who worked or volunteered as an emergency medical technician, ambulance technician or paramedic, in the U.S., and died from COVID-19–related causes at any time through May 15, 2021, including doctors, nurses, technicians, orderlies, cafeteria workers, custodians, emergency medical technicians, and others. The individual must have had exposure to patients with COVID 19 while working or volunteering. The individual did not need to be a licensed medical professional if the other criteria are met.

You do not need to be a U.S. citizen to apply for funds. However, the Fund can only accept applications from U.S. residents.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications will be accepted through December 31, 2021.

The verification portal is available to family members of healthcare workers and healthcare volunteers who lost their lives because of COVID-19 to submit information to verify your eligibility to apply for a Brave of Heart Fund grant. Once verified, the eligible family member will be invited to apply directly to E4E Relief for available grants.
