SBP 2022 FORTIFIED Roof Program Application

Grant Overview

Background on SBP:
SBP exists to shrink the time between disaster and recovery. We believe that a prompt, efficient, and predictable recovery fortifies survivors against reaching their breaking point. SBP is committed to sharing resources and best practices that we have developed over the past 15 years with other nonprofits and community-based organizations. To learn more about SBP, please visit SBPUSA.ORG.

Program Overview:
SBP’s Share program awards grants to qualifying nonprofit partners to address the unmet housing needs of under-resourced neighbors and communities in a timely and efficient manner. SBP also offers grantees technical training on topics such as disaster case management, volunteer management, construction, contractor selection and management, and mold remediation.  Additionally, SBP can also award AmeriCorps member “slots” to qualifying organizations to help build capacity, launch new programs, or support existing efforts. 

Grant details:
By providing homes and families with FORTIFIED roofs, SBP and its partners will effectively prepare communities for future disasters, strengthen at-risk homes and neighborhoods, and help vulnerable families preserve equity by protecting their most valuable asset. 

This grant offers awards up to $8,300 per home to nonprofits and community organizations helping residents recover or rebuild from disasters. Funds can be used for the following purpose: 

  • To purchase supplies and materials necessary to complete required repairs to meet FORTIFIED Roof standards. 
  • To hire FORTIFIED knowledgeable contractors to provide labor. 
Nonprofit organizations repairing homes for the first time are welcome and encouraged to apply. Responses will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis from March 25, 2022, to April 29, 2022, or as long as funds remain available. All work funded through this grant must be completed by October 31, 2022. 

Reporting Requirements:
Our aim is to reduce the complexities and burdensome reporting requirements so that your team has more time to create a client-centric rebuild program. Attached here is the grant FAQ, as well as reporting requirements.
