Financial Assistance for Hurricane Idalia
In the aftermath of Hurricane Idalia, the American Red Cross has worked closely with partners to provide emergency shelter, food, water, relief supplies, emotional support and health services to people in need. Thanks to our generous donors, the Red Cross is now starting to get financial assistance into the hands of residents who have unlivable or destroyed homes.
This financial assistance will allow people to make their own decisions and prioritize what their family needs most to start recovering. Funds can help families replace clothes or food, offset transportation costs, replace spiritual or religious items, and support other immediate needs such as verified, disaster-caused health and mental health needs. Spending these funds locally will also support local communities as they begin recovering.
