Disaster Relief.

Natural disasters strike each and every year all across the United States. Often close to 100 natural disasters are declared each year in response to floods, hurricanes, winter storms, wildfires, droughts, and tornadoes.

FEEA offers disaster relief grants to eligible federal employees when these disasters strike. FEEA has given over 14,000 grants since 1986, for wildfires, hurricanes, and other natural disasters, as well as for groceries, fuel, and diapers during the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.

Please be sure to download and read the Grant Application Instructions before starting the online application. There are a number of documents you will need to collect and attach to your application. You will not be able to submit your application without attaching the required documents.

FEEA will re-open the Shutdown Grant program if there is a shutdown AND federal employees miss a paycheck. Information on available aid and how to apply will be available at that time.
