Contact your local Red Cross chapter and find out which programs are available in your local area. They have proven to be a great source of help, during disasters.
The latest Red Cross grants are for the purchase and installation of individual storm shelters to help people become safer and stronger in the face of future disasters. Oklahoma municipalities, counties, and tribes receiving the Red Cross grants include the City of Newcastle, City of Midwest City, City of Norman, Pottawatomie County (program administered by the City of Shawnee), Cleveland County, Canadian County, the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma and Citizen Potawatomi Nation.
The Red Cross is currently working on agreements to provide storm shelter grants to at least three other municipalities, counties, and or tribes in the storm affected areas.
The specific shelter programs are fully administered by the community receiving the grant. To qualify for Red Cross funding in communities in the program, shelters must meet or exceed FEMA standards.
