COVID 19 Hero’s Fund

Created by: Abby and Ethan Beach

The Ct Nurses Association (CNA) provided access to CT citizens to contribute to the COVID Hero Fund. The CT Nurses’ Hero Fund gave the public an opportunity to support and thank nurses for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds collected to date have exceeded the $10,000 goal set in April 2020. The funds collected will be equally distributed to these categories:

· Nursing education scholarship for the future nurses in CT.

· Community services donation for care-focused for nurse’s well-being and safety; and


· Distribution of remaining funds to the nurses that care for Connecticut and for “unexpected expenses” incurred from March 1 to October 31, 2020.  The Hero Fund amounts will be offered until the allotted funds are exhausted. The allotment per application will not exceed $250.00. Nurses must be licensed in CT as LPN or RN. An application is provided below for your request.


Application submission Deadline is January 31, 2021
