What assistance is available?
Predominately, the VABT provides emergency financial assistance through it’s Emergency Support program to members of our community who have suffered a health crisis or medical emergency.
In the past, financial relief has been provided for varied purposes including, but not limited to, covering medical and dental costs, utility bills or respite care, as well as financial assistance to help purchase groceries or basic survival items. Each application is reviewed on a case-by-case basis, so the assistance offered is often tailored specifically to the needs of the applicant.
In addition to the Emergency Support program, the VABT may also offer additional assistance programs, such as the COVID-19 Assistance Fund.
The specifics of all assistance programs offered by the VABT are outlined within each program’s application process.
Unless otherwise outlined by a specific assistance program, the VABT is unable to provide financial support to those applicants who are unemployed or underemployed and who otherwise are not experiencing ill health or a medical emergency. The VABT is also unable to contribute to production or film fundraising.
