OBRF Financial Assistance Application Process

Please contact the Relief Foundation’s administrative office to request a “Form of Need” application. Once the completed Form of Need has been submitted and initially reviewed by the Executive Director, it is assigned to one of five (5) Board panels for their review and consideration. Should the panel determine that the Form of Need request is consistent with the mission of the Outer Banks Relief Foundation and merits full Board approval, the panel recommends a vote for approval by the Board of Directors. From initial submission of a completed Form of Need to a final Board decision for approval, the process normally takes from 2-3 weeks.

Do you know someone living or working on the Outer Banks with a debilitating disease, or someone experiencing a personal tragedy to themselves or their family?  Please contact us and let us know. Thank you!

Since January, 2006, the Relief Foundation has distributed over $1,653,855 in financial assistance to over 806 recipients in our Outer Banks community. Financial assistance gifts normally range between $500 and $2,000.
