FEMA Forum for Cultural Community this Saturday in NJ

Cultural organizations and facilities that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy have until December 30, 2012, to apply for disaster aid from FEMA through the Public Assistance program. This Saturday, December 15, 2012, from 1-4pm at Monmouth University, FEMA will be holding a forum to provide assistance specifically for cultural organizations applying for federal disaster aid.

FEMA representatives will explain how to apply to FEMA for repairs to structures and the recovery of collections among other topics, followed by a Q&A session. This forum is sponsored by the Heritage Emergency National Task Force in cooperation with the New Jersey Council on the Arts, the Council for the Humanities, the Historic Preservation Office, the Historical Commission, the State Library, the State Archives, and the NJ Association of Museums. For more details, please visit: http://www.nj.gov/state/historical/dos_his_fema-forum_2012-1215.html.

As a reminder, the League maintains a hub of resources related to disaster preparation and relief that you can access online. Also, as we work to improve federal policies for disaster relief, please This email address is being protected from spambots.

Post-Storm Update

Due to the hurricane, the League’s offices were closed Monday and Tuesday. Due to technical difficulties we are still operating at less than full capacity. The good news is that we've all checked in with each other, and everyone at the League is fine. Several staff members are without electrical power but are doing well otherwise. Others are unable to get to the League offices due to public transportation shutdown but may be reachable by email.

The League’s internet service is up and running, but the phone system is experiencing some post-Sandy problems. Those of us who were able to get to the office can call out, but there are no incoming calls at this time. We’re working on getting this problem resolved, but in the meantime, please use email to communicate with us.

Daily updates may be posted on the Hub sporadically, if at all, but we hope to resume full service early next week.

Please note: Several orchestras and concert halls in the region have cancelled performances this week; please check with those organizations for the latest news of concert cancellations and schedules.

Thank you for your patience as we get our operations back to normal. Our thoughts are with all those who have suffered as a result of the storm.
