Our Support Bursary policy has been recently created and there are some significant changes this year. Highlights include:

1) The creation of two tiers of support - those completing between 10-19 hours of volunteer work for HDSA are eligible for up to $800. Those completing more than 20 hours are eligible for $1600.
2) Two reimbursement periods - December and June
3) An expanded list of qualifying activities, therapies and equipment.

The new policy is just being polished off and should be on our website soon. Please contact Lori Sheppard with any questions regarding the new policy.
