Once the application has been completed and
submitted the ARF board will review your request.
Grants amounts and frequency will be provided
based on how much has accumulated in the fund.
The seriousness of the injury will also take priority
along with financial need. For instance; if there are
very little funds in the account ARF will be limited to
the number of grants that it can provide. The board
may decide to hold back on providing grants to
lesser injuries so that there will be funds available in
case a severe or catastrophic injury comes along.
Review process generally takes 30 days from
submission. Typical waiting period to receive a
grant is an additional 30 days after approval has
been voted on.
All grants will be given on behalf of the athlete
directly to the service or equipment provider only.
No direct funds will be given to the athlete and ARF
will not be able to reimburse athlete for expenses.
This is why it is very important to complete the grant
application as soon as possible.
