The AARC has activated its Disaster Relief Fund for AARC members in California who sustained property loss or damage as a result of the California Wall Wildfire in Butte County near the town of Oroville, and the Detwiler Fire in Mariposa County.
Members living in these federally-declared disaster areas may apply for a grant of up to $500, either online or by mail using our downloadable application form. Applications will be reviewed at the AARC executive office, and will then be sent on to the president of the state society for verification and a recommendation of action.
The AARC Disaster Relief Fund was established in 1992 and has been used following hurricanes in Florida and Hawaii, earthquakes and fires in California, flooding in the Midwestern states, tornadoes in numerous areas of the country, and in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The Disaster Fund is open for six months from the date of the disaster.
The fund is all about AARC members helping members.
