Red Cross Offering Financial Assistance to Storm Victims


CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - The American Red Cross has financial assistance available for people whose primary homes were destroyed or are uninhabitable due to the local and regional Tennessee tornadoes of Dec. 9, 2023.

To be eligible for this program, households must meet these requirements:
  • Your pre-disaster primary residence (renter or homeowner) is in a confirmed disaster-impacted geographic area in Tennessee and is either destroyed or has sustained significant structural damage that requires extensive repairs, or the damage is so severe that repairs are not feasible. This may include substantial failure of the roof, walls, or foundation, or a water line above 18 inches. 
  • You must be able to provide proof of identity and residence.
The Red Cross asks people to apply for Federal Disaster Assistance at or by calling 800-621-3362. However, approval for FEMA assistance is not a requirement to receive Red Cross financial assistance.

If you have questions about American Red Cross financial assistance or other services, call 1-800-RED CROSS (800-733-2767)

The Rd Cross is currently stationed in Clarksville at Greater Missionary Baptist Church (450 Ringgold Road) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Saturday, and will re-evaluate its site presence after the holidays.
