Emergency Hardship Loans.

If you are suffering due to the current government shutdown, please ensure you have also recently suffered one of our qualifying emergencies (outlined in the Loan Application Instructions) before applying for a loan. Due to limited funds we are unfortunately not able to offer loans for hardships due only to furlough. FEEA does have small grants available to furloughed/excepted feds earning $55,000/year or less. A separate program is available for active feds who are NARFE members. You may only apply for one program. Please use the buttons below to access more information about those grants.

Tragedy and hardship can strike any family. And when they do, high, unplanned, out-of-pocket expenses can lead a family down a destabilizing and difficult financial path, forcing them to seek high-interest loans, default on their debts, or even file for personal bankruptcy.

FEEA offers eligible federal employees confidential, no-interest loans to help them bridge their financial gaps in times of emergency. FEEA has given over 11,000 loans to federal employees totaling nearly $8 million since 1986.

Please be sure to download and read the Loan Application Instructions before starting the online application. There are a number of documents you will need to collect and attach to your application. You will not be able to submit your application without attaching the required documents.
