The Effie Emergency Assistance Fund (EEAF) can help provide financial aid to stabilize families experiencing a wide variety of crisis situations with the end result of ensuring student(s) can remain in their school of origin with minimal disruption to their health, well-being, education, safety or school attendance.

Examples of what the EEAF can pay:

•Electricity bill payment

•Rent/mortgage (generally one time)

•Other critical utilities

•Gift card for gasoline, food or clothing

•Critical car repairs

•Extraordinary medical bills

•Prescription assistance for students

•Urgent or critical household items (i.e. furniture, food preparation items, linens, etc.)
