About the Program


The National Park Service Employees and Alumni Trust Fund offers a program to aid the NPS Family in times of major disasters (i.e. hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes, tornadoes, pandemic, acts of terrorism/war, etc.) or personal calamities.

Who is Eligible

The disaster relief fund program is open to all federal employees (who are on payroll at the time of an incident and working within the specified geographic region where the event occurred) and to employees of other partner organizations (at E&AA's option dependent on the availability of resources). E&AA funds are meant to provide affected individuals with immediate assistance in paying for temporary shelter, food, damage to homes, personal property, etc., or to offset the adverse impact of a personal calamity. The specific amount of the assistance will be determined at the time the “Trust Fund” officially agrees to support a disaster recovery initiative. Assistance will depend on the amount of available resources currently on hand, the time needed to solicit and successfully raise additional contributions for disaster relief, and the number and the cumulative amount of the requests for aid.

How to Apply

NPS workers

Once the E&AA Trust Fund agrees to support a disaster relief initiative it will normally work closely with an Incident Command Team or with senior leadership to coordinate the relief effort. Normally a “Request for Aid” form is drafted to address the particular event or calamity and made available for distribution to those affected. Eligible parties should submit a completed Request for Aid directly to the “National Park Service Employees and Alumni Trust Fund - Disaster Relief. To ensure that eligibility requirements are met, forms must be approved by the Incident Command Team or a management team member from the National Park Service or equivalent federal agency. Requests for Aid must be submitted within 30 days of the event.
