The Ports America Employee Crisis Fund provides short-term, emergency support for basic necessities to employees or eligible dependents who are experiencing a financial hardship resulting from a sudden, severe, overwhelming and unexpected event that is beyond their control. The event results in significant pressure on the family’s financial resources. The Community Foundation of New Jersey administers the Ports America Employee Crisis Fund. Each application is reviewed on a case-by-case basis and, in its sole discretion, the Community Foundation of New Jersey determines incident eligibility and award amount. The Community Foundation staff is available to assist all applicants in this process. Call 973-267-5533 x227 with questions.
