How would someone go about applying for funding?

The specific process hasn't yet been determined. The goal of this fund is not to help everyone recover 100% of their deposits, but to provide more immediate assistance to those who are in dire financial need due to the CEF collapse. So there will need to be some kind of application process, that much is certain. It's probable that there will be a form to fill out, here on this web site and/or a paper form.
