SBRN’s DERA Fund helps people with emergent needs
SBRN has funding to help people living with spina bifida in New Jersey who are experiencing financial difficulties due to the cost of emergent or basic needs. The SBRN Disaster/Emergency Rapid Assistance (DERA) Fund provides partial or full reimbursement for un-reimbursed excessive expenses for healthcare or basic needs following a crisis or urgent need.
The DERA Fund helps cover costs for medical supplies, healthcare costs and medications, adaptive equipment or other basic needs (e.g., food or other supplies) in response to an urgent or unexpected need. There is a maximum award of $300 and individuals are limited to one-time per year assistance. Due to limited funding, we may not be able to fund all requests.
