- Items covered may include child care, travel, or lodging related to a family emergency; meals incidental to a medical situation; continuance of insurance premiums for prolonged illness or disability; medical equipment and supplies, and other expenses incurred relating to an emergency situation.
- The maximum award equals $500. (Omit per person or per occurrence as program language, as to allow for consideration of unique situations should they arise.)
