As a Coalition member, ESC Local 20 members can apply for a stipend for education and training programs, including continuing education requirements. Stipends are available for classwork or study of up to 16 hours per pay period. The lifetime maximum is 1900 hours per employee. You must talk with your manager to coordinate and approve time off work to participate in the Individual Stipend.
The ESC Local 20 Home Health Therapist employee group is now showing up on the Ben Hudnall Memorial Trust (BHMT) eligibility list and employees can start using BHMT programs and services. Therapists can use the Reduced Hours Request (RHRs) to report stipend time. The RHR is a form that can be printed, signed, and sent back to BHMT. If you have any questions, please contact the ESC Rep for your area. Not sure who your rep is? Use the “Find My Rep” feature on the right.
