NCIDR awards $225,000 in inclusive disaster recovery grant funding

The North Carolina Inclusive Disaster Recovery Network recently awarded $250,000 in grants to support inclusive long-term disaster recovery in eastern North Carolina communities impacted by Hurricane Florence.

Grants are supporting nonprofit organizations that are minority-led or focus long-term recovery efforts on serving traditionally underrepresented communities, including communities of color, those for whom English is the second language, people with physical or cognitive disabilities and communities of lower wealth.

The grants are funded by the NCCF Disaster Relief Fund and administered by the NCIDR, led by our long-standing partners at Rural Forward NC, a program of the Foundation for Health Innovation and Leadership. NCCF engaged NCIDR to conduct this program with a participating grantmaking model, meaning that grant decisions are made by members of NCIDR and others who belong to the communities that the funding will benefit.
