Grant FAQs

How much time will it take to fill out the application?

This will depend on which application you are completing and what is being requested.

Who can apply for a grant?

Hospice patients, their loved ones, hospice employees, and hospice-related non-profit organizations may be eligible for grants to assist with certain needs. Please contact us for more information.

How do I submit my application?

You may email or mail your application to us. Instructions can be found on the application form. We no longer accept applications by fax.

Once I submit my application, how long will it take until I find out the status?

You can expect to receive notification generally between 10 and 15 days after you submitted your application. Notification for emergency requests generally occurs within 72 hours of application submission.

What do you define as an emergency grant request?

There are two instances where a grant request is an emergency: 

  1. A final wish request where the hospice patient is declining and is not expected to live more than a couple of days.
  2. A funeral assistance request where the funeral home requires payment before they will pick up the deceased from the place of death.
How will I learn if my application has been approved or denied?

We’ll provide you with a letter by email or by mail notifying you of the results of your application.

Can I apply for more than one grant?

You may submit more than one application. However, the Hospice Support Foundation is a one-time-only grant award foundation. If your application is approved, you will receive a grant award for only one of your applications.

What happens if I fill out the application incorrectly?

Our goal is to help you as quickly as possible because we know that time is precious. It’s best to fill out the application as fully and accurately as possible before submitting it. Incomplete or incorrectly completed forms will cause delays in the review process. You may always call or email us if you have questions.
