Transportation Expense Reimbursement Program

The UFCW 951 Foundation Transportation Expense Reimbursement Program will award $10,000 in 2021 to financially assist members with essential transportation expenses.
We are proud to introduce the Transportation Expense Reimbursement Program for 2021! The majority of our members incur some type of transportation expense in order to maintain employment. Many of the costliest expenses related to transportation are often the most unpredictable and some families may find it challenging to budget for these expenses.

The UFCW 951 Foundation Transportation Expense Reimbursement Program will award $10,000 in 2021 to financially assist members with essential transportation expenses.

Winners of this award will receive a $250 award to reimburse them for qualifying transportation expenses they have paid in 2021. Ten winners will be selected quarterly during January, April, July and October.

Annual Awards:

  • 40 Transportation Expense Reimbursement Awards of $250 each will be distributed in 2021, with 10 winners being awarded in each of the following months: January, April, July and October.
  • Awards will be dispersed in the form of reimbursements for transportation expenses paid in 2021. UFCW 951 is not responsible for paying any provider directly. Qualifying transportation expenses are those which are necessary for the member to maintain employment. 
  • Award winners will be selected by a committee composed of representatives from the UFCW 951 Foundation and UFCW 951. UFCW 951 members may only win a transportation expense reimbursement once per calendar year.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Be a UFCW 951 member in good standing for at least 90 days prior to being awarded a reimbursement. Winners must remain members in good standing to collect their reimbursement.
  • Provide proof of transportation expenses paid in 2021. For personal vehicle expenses, the vehicle must be in the member’s name or in the name of a roommate, family member, partner or other member of the household, as long as that vehicle is used to transport the member to and from work. Covered transportation expenses include automobile payments, insurance premiums or deductibles, maintenance and repair bills, vehicle registration fees, gas, bus fares, and rideshare service fees.

 
Application

This application is good for the entire calendar year. You may submit a new, updated application if your circumstances change.

The decision of the selection committee is final. Winners only will be notified by UFCW 951. Awards will be dispersed in the form of reimbursements for transportation expenses paid in 2021. UFCW 951 is not responsible for paying any provider directly.
