SCHA Announces $1,000 Grants for S.C. Hospital Employees Impacted by COVID-19
The South Carolina Hospital Association, along with several partners, including Southern Tide and Christian McCaffrey’s 22 and You Foundation, has been raising funds to help frontline healthcare workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to the positive public response to these campaigns, we have established a program to award a $1,000 grant to at least 70 employees of S.C. hospitals who have been significantly impacted by COVID-19.

To be eligible for a grant, individuals must be employed part- or full-time by a South Carolina hospital and must have been personally impacted by COVID-19 from a financial, family or personal health standpoint. The grants are also available to individuals who were furloughed or laid-off by a hospital due to the impact of COVID-19. Those who are eligible can access the COVID-19 Fund Request Form at scha.org/apply.

Individuals who may be eligible should complete the brief application. All applications for funding requests will be reviewed by a panel of leaders representing several of SCHA’s affiliated professional membership groups, SC Healthcare Human Resources Association, SC Organization of Nurse Leaders, and SC Society for Hospital Fund Development. Applicants will be notified if they are selected to receive support from SCHA Foundation. The grants are not considered taxable income.

Funds are limited, so all applications must be received by Friday, June 12. For more information or with questions, contact Lara Hewitt.
