Resources for Recovery to be Updated
In partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Heritage Preservation is reorganizing, updating, and expanding the guide Resources for Recovery: Post-Disaster Aid for Cultural Institutions.
Originally developed in 1992 and revised in 2000 as a post-disaster reference guide to financial aid and recovery information, Resources for Recovery is ready for a makeover. In addition to current information on federal programs providing disaster aid, the publication will include a comprehensive list of essential contacts and on-line resources. Heritage Preservation and its partners will expand the scope of the publication to encompass sources of federal assistance for preparedness, planning, and hazard mitigation, as well as recovery.
The new publication should be ready by next spring, in time for the 2005 hurricane season.
