Your voucher will expire 6 months from the date of the award, or in 14 days if the applicant does not accept the voucher after attempted contact via phone and email.
After the voucher period expires, any remaining funds will be released to other applicants. Voucher recipients are eligible to apply for an extension by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and completing an Extension Request Form.
Your Voucher ID is a 7-digit unique identifer that starts with a letter followed by 6 numbers. This will be given to you in your ‘Welcome Kit’ email after you accept your voucher.
Yes. All Service Providers partnering with the Hello Seven Foundation must have an active license or certification to practice, and active insurance coverage for their business.
Licenses, certifications, and insurance must be active and in good standing.
This includes licensed/certified and insured Birth Doulas, Midwives, Night Nurses (LPN/RN), Newborn Care Specialists, and Postpartum Doulas in the US.
To register, service providers will complete a Service Provider Registration form which includes a space to upload copies of their current licenses and/or certifications to practice and a certificate of Insurance (COI).
Invoices must clearly indicate the dates of service, be itemized, have a unique invoice number, and include the Service Provider’s contact information.
Invoices for childcare, postpartum doula services, and night nurses must include the child’s initials, the provider’s hourly, daily, or weekly rate, and the number of hours, days, or weeks served.
Once you are awarded, you will receive a ‘Welcome Kit’ via email that has everything you need. If you have any questions, let us know!
You will work with your service provider to complete a Voucher Claim Form via Docusign. You will kick off the process by adding their name and email to a form linked in your Welcome Kit email. They will receive a copy of the Voucher Claim Form with specific fields highlighted for them to fill out. They will also be asked to upload an invoice.
Once they complete the form, it will be routed to you (the voucher recipient) for your review and approval. If everything looks good, sign it and it will be sent back to us for processing.
Your provider must be registered with us prior to receiving payment. If your provider did not complete a W9, upload their insurance, and upload their certifications/licenses, they must do so before being eligible to receive payment.
The Hello Seven Foundation will only pay for services after they have been delivered, except:
- If a deposit is required to begin services, Hello Seven Foundation will pay up to 30% the total value of the voucher or total cost of the services, whichever is less.
- For childcare services, the Hello Seven Foundation will pay for up to 1 month at a time prior to the family receiving the care if it is the policy of the childcare provider to receive payment upfront. Invoices should be submitted 15 days prior to the invoice due date.
