IMMEDIATE RESPONSE PROGRAM
During qualified disasters, the recommended first step is to launch an Immediate Response Program (IRP). Our unique, low-cost IRP awards small grants (<$1,000) quickly and efficiently in times of large-scale disasters.
IRPs are supplemental to the Fund’s Standard Grant Program, which can provide larger dollar amounts and may cover expanded grant criteria. This process has a slightly longer lead time, but results in significant and sustainable impact.
“We were struggling because we lost everything we needed to survive during the storm and the aftermath was terrible. This grant has helped us get back where we need to be and helped replace everything we lost. We are truly blessed to work for a company that takes care of their team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“I can’t say enough about the level of gratitude I have. My family has comfort knowing that there are people and organizations that are willing to help. My family can rest a little easier tonight. Though the struggle continues, your support has lifted us up and has provided a much-appreciated boost.”
