_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

The assistance fund for Current/past OU staff impacted by the COVID 19 crises is now closed,  (applications acceptance closed on 01/20/2021

Unfunded requests will carry over to the next month, in hopes that they will be funded then (but carry-over requests will still need to go through the next month's prioritization process and committee recommendation protocols.)
