COVID-19 Relief Fund Grant

Supporting Transportation and Food Service Workers

In order to address the needs of union members who have experienced financial difficulty as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Education Austin has created a relief fund to provide grants for Transportation and Food Service workers.

Grants will be awarded in the amounts of $150, $250, and $350 based on member need.

To be eligible to apply, members must be in good standing and must have been a member for no less than one (1) year.

The deadline to apply for a grant is Friday, May 14, 2021.

Education Austin Emergency Fund requests will be reviewed by a committee and each applicant will be informed of their decision no later than June 3, 2021. Should the request be approved, funds will be mailed to the recipient no later than June 7, 2021.

Please fill out and return the attached application to info@educationaustin.org. If you have any questions before you submit your application, please contact our office.

In solidarity,
