Zeta grant funds available for distribution through Salvation Army

Hurricane Zeta caused great damage to our community and the Salvation Army has acquired a grant to provide relief to those affected.

The grant money is available to those in need in the lower six counties of Mississippi who received damage from Zeta.

These funds are primarily available to those who need rental assistance due to Zeta damages. Applicants must bring documentation of the damage to their appointment. FEMA documentation is no longer necessary.

Assistance is available in three locations: Gulfport, Lucedale, and Pascagoula.

Salvation Army Major Anita Caldwell tells News 25 the documents needed to apply. “So, we can help with rental if you had to rent and therefore, we would like a letter from your landlord saying that there was damage to that home. If you own your home and have insurance that proves that you apply for insurance. If you have something from FEMA, anything that shows us that your home was damaged through Zeta. We would like to assist.”

The application period for these funds is available on a limited time basis. Limited appointments are available each day. Call to schedule your appointment as soon as possible. No walk-ins are available.
