The Texas State Fire Fighters Emergency Relief and College Scholarship Fund, Incorporated, provides emergency relief monies in certain hardship situations to the eligible firefighters or their survivors in $500 increments. No individual may receive more than $1000 for any single hardship or event. You must apply for an initial $500 within 90 days of an event which resulted in your hardship. You must request any second $500 you wish to receive within 90 days after receipt of any initial $500. All eligibility determinations, which are made by the Fund’s Board of Directors, are final.
