To be eligible to receive financial assistance from the FCS Foundation, you must:

  • Be actively undergoing cancer treatment in Florida*
  • Be a current Florida resident
  • Have an annual household income at or below 200% of the national poverty guidelines (will be required to provide bank statements and may need paycheck stubs, SSDI letter or other proof of income)
  • Complete and submit an online application for assistance and all required support documentation

*Please Note: Once cancer treatment has ended, we are unable to assist you any further financially, but we can suggest other resources.

The types of bills that can be paid include:

  • Rent or mortgage payments
  • Homeowners insurance
  • Utilities – electricity and water and sewer
  • One phone bill – either landline or cell
  • Car payments or insurance for one car

If another person’s name other than your spouse’s appears on the bill, FCSF may pay up to ½ or your share.

FCSF is unable to pay the following bills:

  • Medical expenses (including prescriptions)
  • Credit card
  • Tax bills
  • Entertainment (TV, Internet, etc.)
  • Condo, neighborhood association fees, or master fees
  • Health insurance

All grants are paid by check and mailed directly to the entity, landlord or company and NOT to the patient.
