The PEI Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) recognizes that the unique lifestyle that accompanies military service can provide families with additional stressors. One of these stressors on Prince Edward Island is the additional costs incurred with having to travel for medical appointments.
Transportation Assistance for Medical Appointments
Pending availability of funds, the PEI MFRC can provide military families with a bridge pass and/or $50 gas card to assist with transportation for medical purposes.
Funds are for military families (regular force or reserve) living in Prince Edward Island and attending medical appointments away from their home.
The funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until the monthly allotment of funds has been distributed.
In order to access these funds, the member or his/her designate must go to the PEI Military Family Resource Centre, provide the member’s service number and unit, and sign for the gift card.
Members and designates may apply for funding more than once in a fiscal year; however, priority will be given to those who have not yet received funding this FY.
