TBCC Emergency Access Fund

In 2002 TBCC established the Emergency Access Fund to provide financial assistance to individuals in financial need due to inability to work and or mounting medical expenses incurred while undergoing treatment of breast cancer. This fund is designed to partner with other established community agencies to provide quick turn-around funding. This fund has provided assistance in preventing evictions, paying utilities, insurance and medical necessities. Recipients must be residents of Tennessee and currently undergoing breast cancer treatments. For more information about qualifications and how to receive assistance from this fund please call 615-377-8777.
