Hurricane Michael: Disaster Relief Application

FLA members and supporters have raised thousands of dollars to help you through this tumultuous time following Hurricane Michael. We sincerely wish that we could offer assistance to all who require it, but we have limited funds. Therefore, we want to make sure we match the funds to those in most dire need. All applications will be reviewed by a review board, made up of FLA members from around the state.

Apply for Disaster Relief here. 
Please complete the application by March 1. All applications will be reviewed and you will receive a notification once your application has been approved or denied.

We are still accepting donations for those impacted by Hurricane Michael. Click here for more information.
