As your state President, I was notified today by the AARC that the AARC is opening up funds to AARC members that have been impacted by the severe weather and flooding that started on 2-19-19. Funding will be available to TN AARC members impacted in Bedford, Bledsoe, Blount, Carter, Claiborne, Clay, Cocke, Coffee, DeKalb, Decatur, Dickson, Dyer, Fentress, Gibson, Giles, Grainger, Greene, Hamblen, Hamilton, Hancock, Hardin, Hawkins, Hickman, Houston, Humphreys, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson, Knox, Lake, Lauderdale, Lewis, Lincoln, Marion, Marshall, McNairy, Moore, Morgan, Obion, Overton, Perry, Rhea, Roane, Robertson, Scott, Sequatchie, Sevier, Smith, Tipton, Unicoi, Union, Van Buren, Warren, and Wayne counties which have been declared a major disaster area. The AARC Disaster Relief Fund provides grants to members of the AARC at time of natural disasters, declared by government agencies. Grants of up to $500 may be provided to members for incidental expenses as they cope with recovery from property damage incurred. A link will be posted on the AARC website where TN AARC members can apply for this funding based on events in TN counties listed. Please note applicants must be current AARC members in order to apply for the grant. Please let TSRC know if we can help.
