WWIN will make Health Care Gap Fund Grants on a monthly basis. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Online applications and all required documentation must be submitted by 11:59 pm on the last day of the month to be considered for the following month’s grant awards. We will notify all applicants by email of their application status by the end of the month following receipt of their complete application. Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to answer calls or emails about an individual’s application status.

Applying Online

Applicants must complete this online Health Care Gap Fund Grant Application and submit required supporting documentation to be considered. The entire application–both the online form plus the supporting documentation–must be received within the same calendar month for you to be considered for the following month’s grant awards. If either your online application form or your supporting documentation is missing from your application, you will not be considered, and submitted documents will not be maintained.

Because of this, we strongly encourage you to have all of the below documentation ready for submission (via electronic upload, email, fax, or mail, all of which will be described in the online application) before you proceed to complete the online application:

If you have Apple Health insurance coverage, we need:

  • A copy of your Washington Driver’s License or State ID
  • A copy of your Apple Health Services card
  • A copy of your Apple Health insurance coverage plan Identification Card
  • Documentation that you have a need for one of the services WWIN will fund (for example, a dental treatment plan or a prescription for glasses or contact lenses)

If you have Medicare insurance coverage, we need:

  • A copy of your Washington Driver’s License or State ID
  • A copy of your Medicare card
  • Copies of the first two pages of your most recently completed Federal tax return or your last six months’ of bank statements, if you do not file taxes
  • If you are a dependent, copies of your parents’/guardians’ most recently completed tax return(s) or their last six months’ worth of bank statements, if they do not file taxes
  • If you have it, documentation that you have a need for one of the services WWIN will fund (for example, a dental treatment plan or a prescription for glasses or contact lenses)

If you do not have one or more pieces of the required supporting documentation, we recommend that you do not complete this online application at this time. Instead, you should wait until a future month in which you have all supporting documentation ready for submission and return to this page to complete the online application form.

If you are confused about exactly what is needed, you should email our Programs team at programs@wwin.org or call them at 425-451-8838 x301 to ask for assistance before applying.
