GrantWatch, the ever-expanding digital database of current grant and funding opportunities for nonprofits, small businesses and individuals, is calling for immediate grants of support on behalf of Hurricane Harvey’s victims.
GrantWatch is encouraging all foundations & government agencies throughout the United States to use its portal to list a grant for nonprofits and small businesses. Libby Hikind, Founder and CEO of GrantWatch.com, suggests, “In keeping with your agency or organization’s mission and vision, please allot at least 10% of your grant funds for those nonprofits in the areas hit by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana. Send us an email to modify the geographic eligibility for grants already posted on our website or create a new disaster-relief grant.”
Although Texas and Louisiana are currently in the rescue period of Hurricane Harvey, the residents, schools, hospitals, shelters, small businesses, community centers, religious institutions, etc. will soon need grants in every category, which we currently list on GrantWatch, to recover and rebuild. A funding source (grantor) is the expert in its own funding category and has the proven roadmap of success from previously implemented programs. Who better to guide these nonprofits, whose offices and files have been destroyed and whose staff members have become new Hurricane Harvey refugees.

The need is overwhelming for programmatic grant funds from immediate disaster relief to medical to mental health to preschools to homeless to housing to animal rescue—the list does not end.
“As part of GrantWatch’s commitment to the future rebuild and recovery,” GrantWatch Founder and CEO Libby Hikind says, “I have directed my staff to provide nonprofits located in the hard-hit Hurricane Harvey areas the ability to view the full details and descriptions of relevant grants without a paid subscription.”
Massive floods have left at least 40,000 residents without shelter and have caused evacuations from state-designated disaster areas. “There may be as many as half a million Texans who are eligible for financial support,” Vice President Pence told KKTX radio on Tuesday.
State officials expect to see 50 inches of rain accumulate by Monday evening. Continued flooding will cause further displacement of residents, and many shelters are already struggling to meet the needs of new refugees while minimizing risks associated with overcrowding. An estimated 9,000 displaced people are now at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, which has a capacity for 5,000.
Come together for those in need.
