Disaster Preparedness Grant

Lions are among the first organizations to offer help when a disaster happens and are often still there long after other organizations have left. With a disaster grant, they can do even more for Indian communities devastated by hurricanes, floods, fires, and other major events.

Criteria and Application

Emergency Grant

Emergency Grants provide up to US$10,000 for districts impacted by a natural disaster. Lions’ district governors may apply for Emergency Grants to help meet immediate needs such as food, water, clothing, and medical supplies.

Criteria and Application

Community Recovery Grant

Community Recovery Grants aid districts interested in supporting short-term cleanup and repair efforts in situations where other organizations have already addressed immediate needs. Lions’ district governors may submit proposals for Community Recovery Grants. Grants awarded provide up to US$20,000.

Criteria and Application

Major Catastrophe Grant

Major Catastrophe Grants are awarded for long-term reconstruction projects due to disasters that occur on a much larger scale. Major Catastrophe Grants are awarded at the discretion of the International President and the LCIF Chairperson and cannot be applied for by a district.
