Home Featured Company WATCH: How FCIF can help industry members

Since 1981, the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) has been assisting flooring members who are faced with catastrophic illnesses, life-altering injuries and severe disabilities. Last year, the group helped dozens of families across the U.S. by providing a FCIF grant for medical expenses and basic needs such as housing, transportation and food.

Since its founding, the group has distributed more than $7 million in grants. Beneficiaries include flooring retailers, installers, retail salespeople, distributor personnel, mill employees and industry executives.

Each grant is different and can provide relief for a variety of needs, including medical supplies, doctor visits, prescription drugs, hospital stays and more. Grant applications are taken on a rolling basis.

Behind every FCIF grant, is a story of a real person who is fighting one of the hardest battles of their life.

The criteria for application include:

  1. Someone in the home has a life-altering medical event
  2. Family must be in financial need
  3. A household member has 5-plus years in the flooring industry
