P.L. 1987 C.370 established the Catastrophic Illness in Children Relief Fund Commission in the Executive Branch of the State Government to administer the Fund and establish a program by which the public may have access to this financial resource.  Though placed under the Department of Human Services the Catastrophic Illness in Children Relief Fund Commission is independent of the departments' supervision or control.

The Commission consists of 12 members, 7 of whom are appointed from the public and are non-salaried. A public member, elected by the Commission is Chairperson. The other 5 members are the Commissioners of Human Services, Health and Senior Services, Banking and Insurance, Children and Families, and the State Treasurer.

The Commission makes all final decisions on eligibility and the amount of financial assistance.

Since 1989, when the first awards were granted, more than 5,400 families have been assisted and more than $133 million has been approved in uncovered expenses.
