Disaster & hardship relief.

It only takes one disaster to cause severe devastation. A relief fund can lift some of the financial burden for impacted employees.

DID YOU KNOW?

Disasters are on the rise across the world.*

We have immense passion for what we do, and we know that many of those we serve are experiencing severe financial hardship.

This understanding drives every interaction with our Applicants and Grant Recipients, as well as our commitment to supporting our Fund Partners as they endeavor to help their own.

Andrew, Grant Recipient:
"Hurricane Ian made landfall in my home town of Fort Myers, Florida and caused extensive damage. My home was flooded with 2 feet of storm surge, totaling both of my vehicles and destroyed nearly all of our personal property. This grant helped offset the cost of my flood insurance deductible, allowing me to start the process of water mitigation and getting my home certified mold free from the water damage."

 

Additional, immediate assistance for qualified disasters.

Supplemental to the relief fund, our unique, low-cost Immediate Response Programs award small grants (<$1,000) quickly and efficiently in times of large-scale disasters.

“Launching an Immediate Response Program with Emergency Assistance Foundation broadened employee assistance eligibility and provided a new way to show all of our employees that we care. This step eliminated doubts, demonstrating that the company will support employees during challenging times, regardless of title or salary. This notion is demonstrative of our company culture and has helped reinforce NRG as a
place where people are proud to work.”

“You never know when hardship is going to strike. You don’t know where it’s going to strike or who it may impact. We’ve learned that no one is immune to it, so we can all benefit from having a little bit of assistance to get us through rough times.”
