Emergency Hardship Loan Fund Policy

Consistent with the Commitment to Campus (C2C) mission, and as part of its commitment to the well-being of members of the CSU community, C2C has developed the Employee Hardship Loan Fund (EHLF) program to lend a helping hand in times of crisis to those employees most in need.

An emergency assistance program offering loans with little or no interest is consistent with the CSU mission and its role as a fiscally responsible employer that seeks to improve the lives of its employees and maintain their productivity. EHLF loans will be made available to CSU employees experiencing a financial crisis only when there is a reasonable expectation of repayment. Loans will be limited in amount and frequency, and will be repaid by payroll deduction.
