FEMA Assistance for the Cultural Community

FEMA ASSISTANCE FOR THE CULTURAL COMMUNITY: A Forum for Private Nonprofits and Local, Regional, and State Governments

Date: Saturday, December 15, 2012
Time: 1 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Location: Wilson Hall Auditorium, Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ

If your facility and/or cultural collections were damaged by Hurricane Sandy, you have until December 30, 2012, to apply for disaster aid from FEMA through the Public Assistance program. This forum will provide the information cultural heritage stewards need to know about applying for federal disaster aid.

FEMA representatives will explain how to apply to the Public Assistance program for repairs to structures and the recovery of collections; assistance provided by the Small Business Administration to private nonprofits; and the Individual Assistance program that may be available to artists. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.

This program is sponsored by the Heritage Emergency National Task Force in cooperation with the following New Jersey State partners: the 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.

Registration for this free program will begin shortly.
