The Vermont Community Foundation is making grants available to assist Vermont nonprofit organizations affected by Tropical Storm Irene.  Online applications are available on their website: http://www.vermontcf.org/sun-irene
Organizations may apply for up to $5,000 to support repair and recovery for damage sustained from the storm or to cover increased demand for services being provided to those affected by the storm.  Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and grant decisions are made within two weeks of the submission date.
The Foundation has also listed other Irene-related grant opportunities for Vermont non profits as follows: 
FEMA for public assistance grants
CVCAC for small business grants through the VT Irene Flood Relief Fund
Marlboro College for scholarships for nonprofits with flood damage
