Immediately after a disaster, governmental agencies, volunteers and non-profits respond en masse to the affected area. These entities provide essential health and human services. In turn, granting organizations support these first responders by offering grants for general expenses and specific special interests.
Service organizations such as Rotary and Kiwanis likely have a presence in your community or a nearby community. These service organizations sponsor community events, raise money for local causes, and provide volunteers. Don’t overlook these organizations for grant opportunities as well. Many of these types of organizations can provide local grant opportunities that could help your funding needs. Additionally, a lot of these have national foundations, so larger-scale projects could also be eligible.
