Art organizations that were impacted by Hurricane Sandy and have not applied for federal assistance, may still apply.

The deadline for NYC nonprofit organizations to apply for FEMA assistance has been extended to March 15, 2013. FEMA’s public assistance program provides supplemental financial assistance to certain non-profit organizations for response and recovery activities required as a result of a disaster.

To be considered for this program, you must submit a Request for Public Assistance, along with all the forms listed on the PNP Checklist (in PDF), to the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services via email to John Grubsick at jgrubsick3@dhses.ny.gov or by fax at 518-322-4984. FEMA requires that all forms be submitted by March 15 or the organization will not be eligible.

For information on eligibility and forms, please visit http://www.dhses.ny.gov/oem/recovery/. Once your submission is complete, FEMA will determine if you are eligible for assistance and contact you to set up a kick-off meeting.
