Guidelines & Eligibility
The HFC Review Committee will review all applications on a monthly basis. They will be looking for key indicators such as: diagnosis, financial need, emotional need, and access to social support.  


When completing the application, please provide a full narrative of your caregiving experience and current situation.  One sentence and one-word answers do not give the review committee a full understanding of your situation. If one or two sentence answers are provided, your application will likely not advance in the review process. Please provide as much detail as you can so that we can learn more about you and your loved one. Be sure to review your information for accuracy before submitting your application.


Once you submit your application, you will be contacted by email within 60-90 days with the review committee's decision. All applicants will be notified of their status via the email used to register for your Submittable account. You may also sign in to Submittable.com at anytime and check the status of your application.


Please add hfcinfo@homeinsteadinc.com to your contact list in order to receive your application status emails promptly. If you are not receiving our emails, please check your spam, junk or clutter folders.


**When registering to complete the application, the email you use to register is the email that will be used for any notifications regarding grant status. If you are assisting a family caregiver to complete the application, use his or her email address when registering. One application per quarter, per email address/account will be accepted.
