Apply for Local Flood Relief

A Manhattan Flood Recovery Committee has been formed with representatives from Catholic Charities, the Salvation Army, United Way, and Shepherd's Crossing to distribute funds collected by the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation. Their goal is to provide financial assistance to those who were impacted by the Wildcat Creek Flood on September 3, 2018. Funds are limited and will be distributed based on need.

The committee is asking for additional information from anyone impacted by the flood.  The two application forms are available in the links below,at City Hall (1101 Poyntz Avenue) or at any of the three non-profit locations listed below. You must fill out the forms to be eligible for this funding.

The requested information is in addition to the Red Cross registration and can help connect people with local agencies for help.
