In 2017, we witnessed the raw power of nature in multiple disasters from unprecedented flooding to enormous hurricanes and devastating wildfires. Organizations like the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are there to help, but for communities struggling to recover, the long road has just begun.
These presentations will walk through steps for leveraging federal funds for disaster recovery and hazard mitigation following a federal disaster declaration. Tribal governments and nonprofits will learn how to model success, by introducing practical strategies and real-life examples designed to ensure communities receive needed resources after a destructive event. Benefits include access to additional funding, reduced risks of disallowed costs, strengthened program oversight, and better grant outcomes.
In this first session, Lucy will walk through the process that leads to federal grants for disaster recovery from both the perspective of the funding agency and the grant recipient. She will explore practical ways to position your community for recovery after a disaster. Discover what starts the federal disaster assistance process. Identify how disaster aid can be spent and find out more about the Tribal Declarations Pilot Program.
