NCRA members impacted by these fires are reminded that financial aid is available through the NCRF Natural Disaster Relief Fund. Members experiencing hardship from an official natural disaster may apply for NCRF relief using the application found here. The fund is permanently active to assist NCRA members in need after a major natural disaster.
A major natural disaster is defined by the U.S. Department of the Interior as “any hurricane, tornado, storm, flood, high water, tidal wave, earthquake, volcanic eruption, landslide, snowstorm, fire, explosion, or other catastrophes, in any part of the United States which, in the determination of a federal agency head, causes damage of sufficient severity and magnitude such that an emergency action is necessary to the preservation of human life or property.”
