'Need for'
1. need (smt) for -

 

"He said he needed the information for an article he was writting."

And also 'need for' suggests     "something that is necessary, especially something that is not happening yet or is not yet available: The need for stricter regulations.  There´s a need for growing need for new housing in many rural areas"  (Longman Dictionary).

 

 

 For the moment, I would say that the particle 'for' here, give some sense of urgency, of reacting to some (tackle some problem that comes to you).

Some examples that corroborates my thinking (taken from Webcorpus):
