GENERAL: For medically fragile individuals in need of equipment, accessories and items of medical necessity or medical convenience.

TRAVEL: For those seeking reimbursement for medical travel to see doctors and/or specialists. The Medical Travel Worksheet is also available in Excel. If medical treatment is done locally, please use the Local Travel application.

TECHNOLOGY :  For those applying for technology devices and apps.

REPEAT: For applicants who have previously applied, have not reached their $2,500 calendar year cap and who have not had a change in diagnosis.  The Repeat Application is ONLY FOR GENERAL REQUESTS and cannot be used for Travel or Technology!

EMERGENCY SUPPORT FORM: This is for previously approved JHFH applicants who are experiencing an emergency situation that cannot wait until our scheduled Board of Directors meeting. Requests should not exceed $500 as funding is extremely limited. Please note that this does not replace our typical grant request program.
