  • Essential living expenses after a family crisis such as a house fire, or unexpected death or serious illness of a loved one;
  • Medical treatment or health support for situations not fully covered by Medicare or private health insurance;
  • Child care costs when the usual at-home carer is not able to look after their young family during an unexpected family crisis;
  • Education or retraining for Navy members, as well as scholarships for their dependants.
