Limit one application per Individual/family provided. Complete the questionnaire within the designated selection fields marked within the form. All areas marked must be filled out to determine if you are eligible to complete and submit your grant application form. If and only "if" you meet the qualifications provided in the questionnaire, complete the grant application form and submit it, along with all supporting documents to the address provided. NOTE: You must include a Referral Letter from a human service agency or church to verify proof of income, vehicle ownership and proof of insurance. Grant applications submitted without a referral letter shall be disqualified.
Limit of one (1) grant application submission per household. Any government, human service agency, medical facility or church may submit multiple applications provided that there isn't a duplication of effort. Any excessive application submissions will disqualify the individual/agency from future grant submissions.
To be eligible, you must be a legal resident of the 50 United States or District of Columbia and at least the age of majority (18) in your state at the time of submission. You are not eligible if, during the Grant Period you are (or you live with) an employee, representative, or agent of the Sponsor or any of its affiliates, franchisees, licensees of Free Gas USA, Inc. or an immediate family member of any of the foregoing (parent, grandparent, child, sibling or spouse).
THE GASOLINE GRANT
Gasoline Grant cards ranging from $50 to $1200 will be awarded in each of twelve (12) monthly grant periods through a selection process at Free Gas USA, Inc. in Kalamazoo, MI. Grants are awarded based on level of income, circumstance, need, and the availability of income provided by donors, corporate partners and grants obtained from other funding sources. The grants will be awarded to the person(s) who meet all eligibility requirements. The selected applicant(s) will be contacted by telephone and/or email, and may be required to sign and return (within 14 days of receipt) an affidavit of liability/publicity release. If the selected applicant(s) does not comply with the Grant Rules, cannot be contacted within fourteen (14) days or grant notification is returned as undeliverable, that applicant will be disqualified and one (1) alternate applicant will be randomly selected from the eligible applications received. All taxes on all grants are the responsibility of the recipient. Limit one grant per person or household for each fiscal year.
ODDS OF RECEIVING A GRANT
The odds of receiving any gasoline grant depend on the number of eligible submissions received, coupled with the amount of donations received by Free Gas USA, Inc. from the general public on a monthly/annual basis.
NOTE: Submitting a gasoline grant application for processing does not automatically guarantee a grant award.
