CATA/NADA Flood Relief

Repeated July storms left many area dealerships to deal with flooding. It also left many dealership employees facing storm issues at their homes.
 
Those employees can petition the NADA Foundation Emergency Relief Fund for help. For additional help, the CATA will match any of those funds disbursed to workers at area dealerships.
 
The NADA fund awards grants on a sliding scale, from $100 for losses up to $999 to $1,500 for losses of $20,000 or more, based on damages not covered by insurance or other assistance.
 
Established in 1992, the fund has donated almost $5 million to more than 8,700 dealership employees in need. The CATA board last year directed $10,000 to the fund last September to help dealership flood victims in Louisiana.
 
"We have needs in our local area, so the directors made a decision to help our members’ employees," said CATA Chairman Ray Scarpelli Jr. "The storms affected a lot of people. This will help our own, when we need it."
 
By late July, nearly three times more rain had fallen in the area than the month’s historical average.
