Medical Disaster Relief Fund
Medical Disaster Relief Grant applications
As hurricane recovery efforts continue in Southwest Florida and other impacted communities across the state, the FMA is mobilizing to help physicians in need.
Our Foundation for Healthy Floridians has established a medical disaster relief fund and is accepting Medical Disaster Relief grant applications from physicians whose practices were severely damaged or forced to temporarily close because of Hurricane Ian. All funds will go toward helping physicians reopen their practice to continue to provide care to their patients. The application deadline was January 20, 2023 and the Foundation is reviewing all applications and will respond to each applicant..
Help physicians heal their communities
The Foundation gives special thanks to the AMA Foundation for their generous support of the Medical Disaster Relief Fund.
Hurricane Ian unleashed destruction and catastrophic
flooding across the state, leaving millions of Floridians displaced and without
power. Many medical practices, particularly in areas of southwest Florida that
were hardest hit, are severely damaged and unable to provide patient care.
Others will be closed for extended times or forced to relocate. You can help
hurricane-stricken practices recover and reopen by supporting the Foundation for Healthy Floridians Medical Disaster Relief Fund.
The Medical Disaster Relief Fund was established in 2005 following Hurricane Katrina to:
- Help physician practices recover after natural disasters
- Support physicians so that they can provide urgently needed medical services in communities wrecked by natural disasters
Your contribution to the Medical Disaster Relief Fund will allow physician practices to rebuild, reopen and heal their communities. Thank you for your generous support.
The Foundation for Healthy Floridians, the FMA's philanthropic
vehicle, is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All or part of your
donation may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Click below
