The fund is to be used to provide emergency benefit aid to the clergy of the Louisiana Conference and their immediate families, subject to the following guidelines: a. The maximum amount allowed for a single emergency shall be $1,500. b. Exceptional situations may be given special consideration by the Cabinet. c. Only one grant will be provided to any one individual in a twelve month period.
Each clergyperson and local church be requested to provide an adequate medical insurance program for family protection.
