Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must meet all of the following eligibility criteria:
- Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization or government agency, such as municipal or county animal control, with an animal welfare mission or direct relationship with an animal welfare entity, and a federal tax ID (EIN/Employer Identification Number).
- This may include, but is not limited to, shelters, rescues, sanctuaries/hospice, food banks/pantries, animal hospitals/medical clinics, and social service organizations that also assist pet owners and/or displaced or homeless companion animals
- The applicant organization must have been directly affected by the disaster or be providing/participating in direct response to the disaster at the request of an Agency Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). (For more information about specific AHJs in the affected areas, which vary by county, contact the county Offices of Emergency Management in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.)
- The applicant organization must be located in or near the affected geographic areas within the U.S. only
- The applicant must be in need of immediate assistance.

Grants will also be considered for organizations that have not been directly impacted by the disaster but are helping another organization in need -- for example, assisting with the intake of animals from an impacted area. Applicants that are providing assistance in disasters must have received a request from an Agency Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).

Eligible disasters/emergencies must, at minimum, be significant enough to warrant a statewide State of Emergency declaration by the governor of one or more affected U.S. states. (Please note that disaster preparedness efforts, animal cruelty cases, and international requests are NOT eligible for support from the collaborative.)

Applications from organizations that self-deploy will not be considered.
