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 next session, Lucy will walk through the key agencies involved in funding disaster recovery work. She will explore how the federal process works following a disaster and what criteria FEMA reviews before making disaster recommendations. Discover how the federal grant regulations apply to disaster grants and learn more about cost-share requirements.
