Emergency Relief Fund

Assistance is available from the NADA Foundation's Emergency Relief Fund for dealership employees who have been impacted by natural disasters. Apply for assistance or donate to the fund today:



This year alone, the Foundation’s Emergency Relief Fund has helped dealership families impacted by hurricanes Florence and Michael, California wildfire, Texas floods and more. These employees have received funds to help them get back to their day-to-day lives before insurance money arrives, and sometimes before ATMs are up and running. Often, they use ERF grants to buy food, diapers, clothes to return to school and work – the basics we may take for granted.

About the Fund

Established in 1992, more than $7 million has been distributed to 10,500 dealership employees in need.

When disaster strikes, the Foundation:  

  • Immediately informs the state dealer association that the Foundation is prepared to help;
  • The state association gets the message to its dealers;
  • Dealers can apply for aid on behalf of their employees;
  • NADA picks up all administrative costs for this fund; and
  • All money donated to the Emergency Relief Fund goes directly to the dealership employees.
