The Italian American Relief




When tragedies and natural disasters occur in Italy, the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF) through the Italian American Relief, is an immediate responder to fund relief efforts for those in need.

Over the years, NIAF has collaborated with other Italian American organizations, the Embassy of Italy and the U.S. State Department to fund relief projects after the 2002, 2009, 2012 and 2016 earthquakes that struck Puglia, Abruzzo, Emilia-Romagna and Umbria. In 2019, NIAF launched a campaign after the November flooding in Venice, the second-worst flooding in the city’s recorded history.

NIAF has launched a relief fund to aid the people affected by the people affected by the devastating historic flooding in Toscana, a region located in the center-west part of Italy, that is currently ongoing.
