Disaster Relief for Non-Profits

Posted on: June 9, 2011

The League, together with a number of other national arts organizations, has worked with Congress and federal agencies to ensure that arts organizations in communities affected by disaster have improved access to federal relief. Congress has recognized the public value of performing arts organizations by addressing a significant inequity in Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster relief policy. A provision approved by Congress in October, 2006 adds nonprofit performing arts facilities to the list of organizations eligible for future FEMA disaster relief assistance.
