Arkansas Disaster Relief Program opens for donations

NORTH LITTLE ROCK – If you would like to make a monetary donation to help Arkansans impacted by DECLARED disasters, you now have two methods for doing so through the Arkansas Disaster Relief Program. 

You can donate electronically via our website at  Once you are on the donation page, you can select an amount you would like to give.  You can also mail in a donation.  If you choose this method, please make your check payable to DFA.  The check memo should show a note indicating “Donation for Disaster Relief.”   Once received, DFA will deposit the funds into the Arkansas Disaster Relief Program fund to be utilized by the Arkansas Division of Emergency Management (ADEM).  If you wish your donation to go to a specific DECLARED community, a note should be written either on the check or sent along with the check.  DFA will notify ADEM of the amount specified for a community so they may process the funds to the correct entity.

Mail to:
PO Box 248
Little Rock, AR  72203

Under the Arkansas Disaster Relief Program, ADEM is able to provide funds for immediate needs for disaster relief to communities experiencing major impacts from a DECLARED disaster.  These funds are to be utilized as additional state and federal program availability are being determined.

The determination of amount and recipient will be dependent upon the effect of the disaster upon the community and the need within the community.  These funds cannot duplicate other state and federal programs.

All donations to the Arkansas Disaster Relief Program are tax-deductible and donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes after donating.
