This past week, an outbreak of severe tornadoes caused devastation in many parts of America’s heartland.

Areas in the states of Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa were hit especially hard, with deaths reported in Oklahoma and Iowa.

If your rental store or employees are severely impacted by natural disasters, 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.
