Narrative

The Catastrophic Illness in Children Relief Fund (CICRF) provides financial assistance to qualified families caring for children with special health needs and disabilities. The CICRF can help families with certain medical and related expenses that are not covered by insurance, public benefits or other financial source.

CICRF is a reimbursement program; families must have paid for medical expenses > 10% of their income to qualify.

If you are caring for a child or youth under 22 and need financial relief for large medical and related expenses, you may be eligible for the Catastrophic Illness in Children Relief Fund (CICRF).
