Disaster Relief for Dialysis Patients

When disaster strikes a community, the American Kidney Fund's Disaster Relief Program provides emergency assistance block grants to local dialysis centers which then distribute the funds to help their patients pay for essentials such as food, shelter, medications and the cost of fuel or transportation to reach dialysis treatment.

Dialysis center social workers may request a block grant to assist their patients by calling the American Kidney Fund Patient Services Department at 1-800-638-8299. The American Kidney Fund does not accept Disaster Relief grant applications directly from patients.
