      year):


      FOR PRIVATELY PAID INSURANCE PLANS:

  • A copy of your notification from your insurance carrier(s) regarding your 2020 insurance premium cost AND policy calendar year, i.e. January 1 - December 31 OR July 1 - June 30, etc.

IF APPLYING FOR EMPLOYER SPONSORED PLANS: 

  • A copy of your most current pay stub indicating the cost of your insurance deductions
     AND
  • A verifying document from HR, such as a benefit table with your selected levels highlighted, as to your monthly group premium rates AND an indication of the policy calendar year dates, i.e. June 1 - May 31.

OR 


IF APPLYING AFTER JANUARY 1 FOR THE CURRENT CALENDAR YEAR:

    
     FOR PRIVATELY PAID INSURANCE PLANS:
  • A copy of your most current invoice from your insurance carrier(s) indicating your insurance premium cost AND policy calendar year, i.e. January 1 - December 31. This can be submitted as two separate documents if needed. 
    FOR EMPLOYER SPONSORED PLANS:
  • A copy of your most current pay stub indicating the cost of your insurance 
      AND 
  • A verifying document from HR, such as a benefit table with your selected levels highlighted, as to your monthly group premium rates as well as the policy calendar year dates, i.e. June 1 - May 31.
YOUR INSURANCE POLICY CALENDAR YEAR IS REQUIRED AS PART OF THE VERIFYING DOCUMENTATION
    
If you are completing the application prior to January 1 for the upcoming calendar year, it is your responsibility to ensure the proof of insurance you are providing accurately reflects the 2020 premium for each policy. 

If your policy effective year is not January 1 - December 31, you must also provide documentation that verifies the policy calendar year, i.e. the letter last received by the health insurance carrier informing you of your premium rate as well as the effective date of the premium change.

Certification



All information provided by an applicant will be held in the strictest confidence and is the sole property of the NGF/NGCF, its staff and its advisory board. No information provided to the NGF/NGCF will be released to any other organization or entity unless the applicant signs an appropriate release of information.

Please keep copies of all correspondence sent to the NGF/NGCF including the application, financial statements and any other documents provided to the NGF/NGCF.

Grants requests are only considered for complete applications (see above requirements re: verifying documentation). The CARE grant calendar cycle is December - November as monthly CARE grants are disbursed the month prior, i.e. January grant checks are disbursed in December. Approved grant requests after mid-December in any calendar year, will commence with the CARE grant disbursement the following month and, therefore, will not be a full 12 month grant cycle. 

Please note that it is possible for grant requests made by qualified applicants to be denied due to request exceeding available funds. This application in no way guarantees the receipt of or entitles the applicants to requested grant funds.
