Urgent Need

Urgent Need Grants address an immediate threat to health or safety resulting from a sudden and severe emergency. These awards assist in meeting community needs created by a severe natural or other disaster. The need must be certified by the state agency that has regulatory oversight.

Applications are reviewed on an as-needed basis throughout the year. The maximum amount awarded is $400,000 per grant. Applications must be received within six months of the occurrence.
