Join this webinar to learn how your foundation can complement FEMA's disaster recovery efforts in your community. To recover successfully from major natural disasters, coordination of public, private, and philanthropic resources is important to avoid duplication of effort and to deepen the array of supports available to communities. Disaster funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are declared quickly but are not necessarily the fastest available dollars for assistance to individuals for lifeline support. In this session, FEMA Philanthropic Advisors and Coordinating Officers will join three community foundations to share how they are currently working together on long-term recovery plans in communities impacted by recent wildfires in the West and tornado and flood events in Kentucky and Tennessee. Learn how and when FEMA dollars flow after disaster declarations are issued and what government funding programs are available to communities for long-term planning and future mitigation.
