Hardship Program

The purpose of the Indiana State Transportation Workers Foundation, Inc. (ISTWF) Hardship Program is to provide immediate, short-term monetary assistance to Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) employees or their immediate family members in the event that they suffer a serious loss as a result of a natural disaster, serious injury or illness, or death. The objective of the monetary assistance provided by the ISTWF is to help INDOT employees and their immediate family members continue to have access to the basic essentials of daily life immediately following one or more of the unexpected events detailed below. All benefits, except loss of an employee’s life in the line of duty, must be applied for using the ISTWF Hardship Program Aplication process, as outlined below. All applications and monetary distributions will be reviewed and subsequently approved or denied by the Hardship Committee of the ISTWF.
