Champion Credit Union Member Relief grants are awarded to provide cash for temporary emergency expenses for Champion Credit Union members who suffer financial hardship in cases of natural or man-made disasters, including floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, landslides, fires, drought, or civil disturbances.
NOTE: Members whose homes and/or real and personal property suffer severe damage due to disasters and are experiencing financial hardship are eligible for grant assistance. Members must provide evidence of severe damage (e.g., pictures, insurance damage assessments, etc.) and a statement describing their severe damage and resulting financial hardship. Any disbursement shall only be made to existing CCU members at the time of the disaster. Disbursements shall be granted for immediate housing, food, medical supplies and services, clothing, and other similar disaster relief. The maximum amount of any grant shall be $2,000 for any single disaster occurrence. Multiple awards to CCU members residing in the same household exceeding the above-mentioned dollar limitations shall not be granted. For example, if both the husband and wife are CCU members at the time of the disaster, they are only collectively eligible to receive one grant of up to $2,000 for a single disaster occurrence. Grants may take up to 5 business days to process by the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, the administrator of the Champion Credit Union Member Relief Fund. Notification on the application status will be provided by the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation via email with funds disbursed to your Champion Credit Union account within 24 hours of your grant’s approval. A grant is not taxable income.
