Safe Oasis Grant Program Accepting Applications Through August 2012

Housing non-profit re|shelter has opened the doors to their small grant program for those whose ability to live safely in their current home has been severely compromised by environmental intolerances.

 
PRLog - Aug. 8, 2012 - SNOWFLAKE, Ariz. -- Housing non-profit re|shelter has opened the doors to its Safe Oasis Grant Program beginning Wednesday, August 8. Applications will be accepted through August 31. Re|shelter will offer (5) small grants up to $2,000 each to eligible individuals whose ability to continue to live safely in their current home has been severely compromised by environmental intolerances. The program is only open to legal residents of the U.S. All grant monies awarded are required to be used for home and trailer renovations (including materials and labor), air quality improvement appliances, environmental testing, or towards the purchase of environmentally safer homes and trailers to be used as a primary residence. Grant recipients will be notified and checks will be mailed out no later than October 15, 2012.

Disabling environmental sensitivities can be caused by acute or low-grade chronic exposure to petrochemicals, pesticides and other commonly used synthetic chemicals, toxic mold, Borrelia burgdorferi (the spirochete that causes lyme disease), and other neurotoxins.

Grant criteria and applications can be found at http://reshelter.org/grant-programs/.

Re|shelter is putting a call out to its supporters to help them double the $10,000 available in their Safe Oasis Grant Fund by September 30 so they can award more grants before the final grant decisions are made. All contributions to re|shelter between now and September 30 will be earmarked for the Safe Oasis Grant Program, which is only open to U.S. residents.

Re|shelter president Julie Genser shares, "There are thousands - if not millions - of environmental refugees across America and around the world, struggling to survive in an increasingly toxic world. They all suffer from severe, disabling environmental sensitivities that make finding safe housing nearly impossible. There just aren't enough safe, affordable choices in today's housing market. Re|shelter wants to change that, but we need your help. Please help us, so we in turn can help this marginalized and vulnerable population that has historically been ignored, maligned, and denied resources in just about every sector of our society."
