HURRICANE RECOVERY GRANTS REBUILDING OUR REGION

The Miami Foundation works to mobilize donors, businesses and public leaders to support a thriving Miami-Dade CountyThis is especially true in times of disaster. We leverage our unique strengths, relationships, reach and knowledge to assess critical needs and identify strategic investments that will ensure our community is resilient and prepared for potential disasters, like hurricanes, and ensure equitable relief and long-term recovery is achieved. 

 

Support our Hurricane Relief Fund.  Year-round, the Fund supports efforts to prepare the community with information and resources to be more resilient when a disaster strikes. During a crisis, the Fund supports relief, recovery, and resilient recovery efforts in Miami-Dade County.

In September 2017, Hurricanes Irma and Maria hit our region, causing widespread damage throughout South Florida, the Florida Keys and the Caribbean islands. With the support of donors around the globe, The Miami Foundation awarded more than $6 million to support or relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts for all the affected communities. 

 

  • Relief Aid: Providing humanitarian assistance to people lacking access to food, water, shelter or supplies 
  • Hardship Recovery: Helping residents overcome enduring economic, social, health and physical hardships from the hurricane 
  • Resilient Recovery: Restoring the capacity of community groups and government bodies to help residents recover, cope with and prepare for disasters 

 

As we work to ensure our community is prepared for the effects of future storms, please contact Chelsea Clark, Programs Associate, for more information.
