The intended purpose of any monetary assistance given from the Fund under these circumstances is to ensure employees and their immediate families can continue to receive the benefit of the necessities of life immediately following an unexpected catastrophic event.

This Fund is not intended to be insurance against losses or damage.



Proceeds may also be used for tuition assistance scholarships for employees of the Department or their immediate family members or dependents.

All of the funds are administered by the Board of Directors of the Correctional Professionals Assistance Fund of Indiana.
