COVID-19 Crisis Financial Support (CFS)

Monetary awards through CCHASM Crisis Financial Support (CFS) fund are available as of June 1, 2023, to individuals and families who have been adversely affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and are facing a sudden economic hardship.

In 2020, we created a $100,000 crisis fund for financial assistance.  From 2020 - 2021,  CCHASM provided $350 awards throughout our service area. A second phase of the CFS program will be implemented through May 2024 or until funds are exhausted.
