During the coronavirus pandemic, FEEA is prioritizing its no-fee, no-interest hardship loans to serve federal employees who have exhausted all annual, sick, advanced, and FFCRA leave from their agency, are currently showing leave without pay on their most recent pay stub and are:
- hospitalized with COVID-19; or
- severely ill at home with COVID-19 (unable to work); or
- serving as primary caregiver for a family member, living in in the
employee’s home, who is seriously ill with COVID-19
The initial loan maximum will be $500. Our ability to give loans during this time is subject to available funding and lower-income families will receive priority for available funds.
While we know many feds may be suffering from other negative economic events related to the pandemic, our limited resources require us to begin by helping those who are seriously ill. Our regular loan program is still available for those suffering from other serious illnesses and disasters, but funds are limited. Please see the program overview for more information.
We encourage you to also visit FEEA’s Coronavirus Resources page for other helpful information.
