How We Process Your Application

Applications are reviewed by the RMCA staff. Incomplete applications will not be considered and will be placed on hold until complete.

If an applicant is approved for assistance, the applicant will be notified by phone or e-mail regarding the amount of the assistance.

Financial assistance checks are made payable to the vendor and sent to the applicant for mailing to the vendor.

What We Fund

RMCA's financial assistance typically pays for the most basic of needs: food, housing, utilities, transportation, and health insurance premiums or COBRA payments.. This support helps reduce the stress of maintaining daily routines during treatment and contributes to retaining dignity and quality of life.
