Fund for the Flood

On July 23, 2018 Santa Fe received a record 3.57 inches of rainfall – approximately 25% of its annual average – in one night. The 1000-year rain storm flooded homes and businesses throughout the city. 

The Santa Fe Community Foundation has created the Fund for the Flood, a program to respond to critical home repairs such as destroyed flooring, drywall, roofing, and windows. Through the program, low-income households may apply for funding online.

A committee will determine if the repair or replacement of items is eligible. If the applicant qualifies, funds will be given directly to contractors and/or businesses replacing damaged items.
