SBRN’s DERA Fund helps people with emergent needs
We are pleased to announce that SBRN has funding to help people living with spina bifida in New Jersey who have emergent needs during the pandemic. The SBRN Disaster/Emergency Rapid Assistance (DERA) Fund was initially started to provide emergency assistance to people with spina bifida following an event such as a natural disaster, fire, accident or other emergency. During this time of public health crisis, the fund is now focusing on emergent needs during the coronavirus pandemic.
The DERA Fund helps individuals from NJ with acquiring medical supplies, covering non-reimbursable medical costs and medications, assisting with adaptive equipment or other basic needs (e.g., food or other supplies) in response to an urgent need during the pandemic. There is a maximum award of $300 and this is one-time only assistance. Due to limited funding, we may not be able to fund all requests.
