Following Hurricane Katrina, a frequently cited demand of cultural institutions and arts organizations was for concise and practical information on how to apply for federal disaster funding and find the necessary forms.
Last year Heritage Preservation produced, on behalf of the Heritage Emergency National Task Force Lessons Applied project, an online version of the Guide to Navigating Federal Emergency Management Agency and Small Business Administration Aid for Cultural Institutions.
This guide is now available in a print version, thanks to the support of the Institute of Museum and Library services and the National Endowment for the Arts. It features a summary of federal recovery funding, essential contact information, relevant policies and required forms.
Additional copies can be requested by calling 1-888-979-2233, or by visiting the Heritage Preservation online bookstore. Single print copies are available at no cost to institutions in declared disaster areas.
