Emergency Financial Assistance

The Hemophilia Foundation of Greater Florida designed the Emergency Financial Assistance Program (EFAP) to help people with bleeding disorders. Hemophilia Foundation Emergency Financial Assistance Program funds are intended for a crisis situation or unforeseen emergency.  All requests for assistance with rent, utilities, mortgage, medical bills and medical equipment must be in the name of the person with the bleeding disorder, unless the person with the bleeding disorder is under the age of 18. Therefore, the names of family members and other relatives are prohibited from financial assistance.
