B. WHAT OCCURS NEXT AFTER APPLYING?
We move very quickly and you will usually hear from us by email within 24 hours with follow up questions and requesting supporting documents. How quickly a final decision is made is based on how quickly the applicant answers the questions presented and supplies the documents requested. We can grant as quickly as a few hours.
The Here to Help Foundation does not provide money to the client directly but to the service provider or creditor (i.e. car repair shop, landlord, utility service etc.). If you have already paid the bill and are seeking reimbursement from Here to Help, then we cannot assist. Payment is accomplished as quickly as possible given the emergency situation involved.
