Postal employees whose property was damaged or destroyed due to recent flooding in Iowa and other parts of the Midwest are eligible to apply for grants from the Postal Employees Relief Fund, APWU President William Burrus has reminded union members. 

PERF provides financial assistance to postal employees and retirees who have suffered substantial losses as a result of natural disasters or home fires if they are not reimbursed by insurance or other grants. Supported and administered by the unions and the Postal Service, PERF is a tax-exempt charitable organization that is funded through donations from postal employees.
