Equine Community Assistance Program

The goal of Hope ECAP is to reduce the burden of horse owners in our community in a time of crisis. Our program is designed to prevent neglect and help members of our community get back on their feet. Horse owners will be issued a voucher for the needs determined by the application. We encourage you to use your own veterinarian, farrier and feed store; however, if you need assistance in finding a service, Hope ECAP can help with that too.

There are basic minimum requirements to qualify:

  1. You must be a single-family horse owner facing financial hardship. (Hope ECAP does not provide assistance to non-profits, horse rescues, horse sanctuaries, foundations, or horse breeding operations.)
  2. You must provide a safe, clean, healthy environment to maintain your horse(s).
  3. You must show documented financial need due to unemployment or other financial hardship.
  4. You must be open to meeting with a Hope ECAP representative, who will do a site visit.
