Grant round opens for nonprofit needs related to Table Rock Lake disaster

Proposals are now being accepted from nonprofit agencies with needs related to the July 19 amphibious vehicle disaster at Table Rock Lake or goals to improve preparedness or response to future emergencies.

The Table Rock Lake Community Foundation and the Community Foundation of Taney County, both affiliates of the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, are offering this grant opportunity to agencies involved in the disaster response that have 501(c)3 or equivalent status, such as government or faith institutions.

The grant funding is made possible through the generosity of donors who responded after the duck boat sank during a severe storm, killing 17 people. The CFO and its affiliate foundations opened a recovery fund at the request of local leaders to support families of victims and related longer-term needs in the community such emergency management operations and mental-health counseling.

The CFO has partnered with the American Red Cross and the Branson-based Skaggs Foundation to reach out to the families of the 17 victims. The CFO supported assistance for those families through its partnership with the Skaggs Foundation.

About $50,000 will be available for proposals for disaster-related needs. As place-based foundations, the CFO and its affiliates have learned how large-scale disasters have long-term impact on community resources and the ability of agencies to address ongoing needs in the months following the disaster. The Table Rock Lake Community Foundation and the Community Foundation of Taney County have formed a joint committee to review proposals. The deadline for applications is 11:59 p.m., Friday, Sept 21.
