ARA FoundationIn recent weeks, flooding produced by storms described by the California secretary of natural resources as “epic in proportion” inundated the West Coast, while tornadoes devastated communities across Alabama and Georgia. Each of these weather events have caused widespread, catastrophic damage and deaths. 

If your rental operation or your employees have been severely impacted by flooding or tornadoes, know that the ARA Foundation’s Disaster Relief Grants are here to assist. 

Two types of grants are available: 

Business Disaster Relief Grants offer between $500 and $2,500. They are designed to help rental businesses rebuild. 

Employee Disaster Relief Grants range from $500 to $2,000. They can help employees get back on their feet. Business owners must apply for these grants on behalf of their employees.
