PLEASE NOTE due to IRS regulations, we cannot assist with lost wages due to reduction in hours or missed work.

At Clear Channel Outdoor, we are proud of our history of providing help in times of need. Now, when disaster strikes close to home, CCO is pleased to offer help to its employees through the creation of the Clear Channel Employee Relief Fund. This fund was created to help employees who are facing financial hardship immediately after a disaster or during unanticipated and unavoidable personal emergencies.
Funded by an initial donation from Clear Channel Outdoor and sustained by the generous support of CCO employees and other donors, our Employee Relief Fund provides short-term, immediate financial relief to employees who have suffered significant hardship because of a disaster, family death, medical emergency or other unforeseen designated events.
