In response to the needs of HBA members in transition, we are pleased to offer a member in transition rate. This grant significantly reduces the membership renewal rate for an individual in need of financial assistance due to involuntary unemployment. We offer this grant in the hopes of retaining members and to assist those in need to sustain and fortify their network within the HBA through their continued membership. For more information on this program, click here.

This grant reduces the one-year membership fee to $100 for renewals. To apply, submit the application via this survey or download the pdf form.

Current members may apply in the window one month prior to your expiration date and two months after your expiration date (which is considered the grace period).

Who is eligible?
Eligible individuals are those who have been impacted by involuntary job loss (currently involuntarily unemployed) and are within their grace period to renew their membership.

Who is not eligible?
Those who are ineligible are individuals who have never been members of the HBA, those who voluntarily left employment and independent business owners.
