SBP 2022 Western Kentucky Tornado Repair 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 safe and resilient homes, 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 allows for the following type of services: 

Option A: Funds and training to support the installation of FORTIFIED Roofs. 
Option B: Funds to provide home repairs to tornado-damaged homes but NOT Fortified Roofs. 
Option C: Funds to support BOTH the installation of FORTIFIED Roofs and home repairs. (Both A and B)

Note: If you are applying for Option A or C, you are required to familiarize yourself with FORTIFIED  Roofing Standards and guidelines. 

Note: These funds are allocated for hard construction costs with an allowance of up to 10% of the funds for overhead and 5% for project management fees.

Nonprofit organizations repairing homes for the first time are welcome and encouraged to apply. Responses will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis as long as funds remain available. 

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 Overview, as well as the reporting requirements.
