Disability Funders Network Activates Rapid Response Fund in Response to Hurricane Sandy
Deadline: Contact funder

The Disability Funders Network has activated its Rapid Response Fund to help nonprofit organizations meet the immediate and long-term needs of people with disabilities in the Northeast affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The DFN Rapid Response Fund will offer mini-grants to nonprofit organizations working to meet specific needs such as transportation, shelter, medication, medical equipment, and assistive technology for people with disabilities.

Grants from the fund will be disbursed directly to nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations with the capacity for the greatest impact among hurricane victims and/or evacuees with disabilities. Initially, grants from the fund will focus on immediate needs of people with disabilities. Eventually, awards will be made to address long-term needs as well.

Visit the DFN Web site for complete program information, application procedures, and contact information.
