The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) offers support from the ARVC Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund to members that are impacted by natural disasters like Tropical Storm Imelda.
The ARVC Foundation created a Disaster Relief Fund to directly help our member parks in the stricken states affected by Hurricane Katrina. Since that time, the fund has grown to help any ARVC member who has suffered a natural disaster that disrupts their business, whether a fire, flooding, landslide, ice storm, etc.
The loans and grants are not meant to replace insurance already in place at the parks, but offer assistance in filling an immediate gap.
If your park has been impacted by Imelda or another disaster you can review the criteria sheet for receiving the funds and then complete and submit the disaster relief application form. Park owners must apply for assistance within 60 days of experiencing a disaster.
Parks may apply for any, or all, of the following:
- Up to $1,000 grant for interim relief for personal use.
- Up to $3,000 grant for interim relief for business use.
- Up to $1,000 grant for providing shelter, food, clothing, etc., to victims of a natural disaster including park staff.
