FEMA Forum for Cultural Community this Saturday in NJ

Posted on: December 12, 2012

Cultural organizations and facilities that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy have until December 30, 2012, to apply for disaster aid from FEMA through the Public Assistance program. This Saturday, December 15, 2012, from 1-4pm at Monmouth University, FEMA will be holding a forum to provide assistance specifically for cultural organizations applying for federal disaster aid.

FEMA representatives will explain how to apply to FEMA for repairs to structures and the recovery of collections among other topics, followed by a Q&A session. This forum is sponsored by the Heritage Emergency National Task Force in cooperation with the New Jersey Council on the Arts, the Council for the Humanities, the Historic Preservation Office, the Historical Commission, the State Library, the State Archives, and the NJ Association of Museums.

As a reminder, the League maintains a hub of resources related to disaster preparation and relief that you can access online. Also, as we work to improve federal policies.
