This program provides support to family physicians who have undergone uninsured losses to their medical practices and/or who need help to get their practices up and running again in a time of crisis. It also provides a means by which AAFP members can donate funds to help their colleagues who are disadvantaged by a disaster.
Grants will be awarded to assist in the repair and rebuilding process. Grant amounts range up to $2,000 and will be reviewed and approved by the AAFP Foundation Board of Trustees. Grant applications are received throughout the year. If you need assistance, please complete the Disaster Assistance Application (2-page PDF file; About PDFs) and submit electronically to Phyllis Naragon.
If you'd like to help those in need, please donate and indicate the Disaster Assistance Program.
