SBP 2022 Hurricane Ian Response Grant 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 the resources and best practices we have developed over the past 15 years with other nonprofits and community-based organizations, with a preference given to organizations that work in under-resourced communities and communities of color where recovery programs are often not equitable. 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. 

To apply for these funds, applicants are required to be locally based in a Florida county that received an Individual Assistance (IA)-declaration from FEMA. Applicants are required to be a 501c3 (or similar status), licensed and insured, and demonstrate the ability to repair homes for under-resourced households, with a track record of working in and supporting communities of color.
