Employee Crisis Fund


Examples of incidents which might qualify for assistance include:

  • Traumatic car accidents
  • A sudden death within a family
  • A critical illness or injury where a trip to Minneapolis or Rochester for specialized treatment not available here might be necessary
  • Natural disasters causing damage to property including home flooding caused by swollen rivers or creeks

Employees who have completed their probationary period and are regular status are eligible to apply for assistance through the Employee Crisis Fund. At the Review Committee's discretion, up to $1,000 per employee may be granted in a 12-month period provided funds are available.

A committee will review each request to evaluate the level of need based on established criteria. Completed request forms are submitted directly to Human Resources. The Employee Crisis Fund review committee will notify applicants of the results as soon as possible.
