The Benton County Relief Fund, a partnership for Benton County cities and citizens, announced that it is providing short-term financial assistance to Benton County households impacted by the devastating storms of May 26, 2024. The Fund will also support local nonprofit service providers for their disaster responses for Benton County and all affected communities therein.

Households that live in Benton County, were directly impacted by the May 26th storms, and make $125,000 or less annually are eligible for the Fund. Residents will also receive customized resource plans that will connect them to as many resources as possible to ensure that their needs are met. Those who are interested should fill out the form at to start the process.

The Fund has already received contributions from Excellerate Foundation, Walton Family Foundation, and Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, but the scope of the storm damage means that more help is desperately needed.
