Districts that have been affected by natural disasters can use Rotary disaster response grants to launch their own projects or work with established relief organizations to help their communities recover. Grant funds can be used to provide basic items such as water, food, medicine, and clothing. Qualified districts in an affected area or country may apply for a maximum grant of $25,000, based on the availability of funds. Download and read the grant terms and conditions before applying. A district may apply for subsequent grants after it successfully reports outcomes from previous grants.
Starting on July 1st, the application for disaster response grants will be available online to the district governor and Rotary Foundation chairperson, on the Grant Center landing page. This change is designed to make applying for disaster response grants easier and expedite receipt of responses. After July 1st, applications sent by email, will receive a response directing you to apply in the Grant Center.
