      Hurricane Ida Relief Fund
      FFL Grants $40,000 to Local, Black-Led Orgs Providing Direct Aid

      Foundation for Louisiana is proud to have granted $40,000 from our Hurricane Ida Relief Fund to the following Black-led, local organizations who have been providing direct aid to south Louisianans in need.

      ReThink, a New Orleans-based organization that supports youth of color working towards transformative change, distributed thousands of dollars in direct aid to youth and families following Hurricane Ida. As families continue to struggle to purchase essentials, ReThink has distributed food, water, medicine, and supplies from their office.

      House of Tulip, a trans and gender non-conforming (TGNC) led organization that works to combat houselessness in the TGNC community allocated a portion of their operating budget to providing cash assistance to those who needed it most in the days leading up to Hurricane Ida and in the aftermath. With help from community donations, they were able to distribute over $90,000 in direct aid to people across the region. House of Tulip's swift action helped folks pay for gas, groceries, and lodging, and their leadership saved lives.

      With more than 20 years of experience, Families and Friends of Louisiana's Incarcerated Children was all too familiar with the ways hurricanes can further separate and traumatize families with incarcerated children. FFLIC provided emergency grants to sustain families as they awaited FEMA aid and helped families locate their incarcerated children after evacuation. Learn more about the unique challenges incarcerated children and their families are facing and the work FFLIC is doing to keep them safe and reunite families here.

      We are continuing to fundraise to provide additional grants, with an emphasis on the hard-hit Bayou and River parishes, Black, indigenous, other people of color, and marginalized communities who have less access to resources in the wake of climate disaster and structural failures. If you are able to contribute, please do so here.

The Foundation granted the first $10,000 to the following indigenous and mutual aid groups that serve coastal communities:

      1. First People’s Conservation Council, consisting of the following tribes:
        • Avoyel Taensa
        • Bayou Lafourche Biloxi Chitimacha
        • Pointe-au-Chien Indian Tribe
        • Grand Bayou Indian Village

      Foundation for Louisiana is continuing to fundraise to provide additional grants to other communities, with an emphasis on Black, indigenous, other people of color and marginalized communities who have less access to resources that are critically needed in the face of a natural disaster.

      This is a dangerous storm and additional support is urgently needed. If you are able to contribute, please do so.
