It's called the Faulkner County Disaster Recovery Fund. Organizations will be able to apply for the money. Then a committee made of local everyday citizens will determine how best to use those funds. The goal is to provide long-term support for rebuilding and recovery efforts.
"The needs will not end with food, water, and shelter. There is a long and difficult road ahead," says Heather Larkin.
The Arkansas Community Foundation which oversees the recovery fund says grants will be dispersed in July or August at the earliest.
