The NHF Nevada Chapter's Financial Assistance Program (FAP) is part of our continuing effort to improve the quality of life of individuals and families affected by bleeding disorders.
The Nevada Chapter of NHF provides emergency financial support, based on availability of funding, to help pay for:
- Expenses incurred in the care, treatment, or prevention of a bleeding disorder
- Medic Alert Bracelets
- Transportation services to medical appointments and HTC's
- Basic Living expense emergencies (rent, mortgage, utilities, food, etc)
- Educational Needs
Prospective Applicants will need to meet the following criteria:
- Be a resident of Nevada and/or receive treatment from a comprehensive hemophilia treatment center (HTC) that is funded in part by The Center for Comprehensive Care & Diagnosis of Inherited Blood Disorders as part of the Western States Regional Hemophilia Network.
- Be a parent or caregiver of a minor child who lives in your home and who has a diagnosis of a bleeding disorder OR be an individual diagnosed with a bleeding disorder.
- Complete the Emergency Financial Assistance Application. Then the Nevada Chapter of NHF determines that the applicant qualifies for financial assistance pursuant to its Emergency Financial Assistance Policy.
The Nevada Chapter of NHF requires requesting assistance from at least two (2) other agencies before applying to the Nevada Chapter of NHF for funding. Please provide any relevant contact information for those agencies and the status of your request.
Emergency financial assistance depends on the availability of funds and applicant eligibility. Funding is not guaranteed. Assistance is limited to one grant per calendar year per family with a maximum of $300 being available for financial assistance.
