Navigating Public Assistance Following a Disaster

Navigating Public Assistance Following a Disaster
Live Webinar and Chat
Wednesday, June 25, 2014
3:30 – 5:00 pm Eastern
Instructor: Kristy Barbier, Program Specialist – Appeals Team, Public Assistance, FEMA Region VI

Who Should Attend?
Interested members of a state cultural heritage emergency network, including but not limited to:

  • Representatives of state cultural agencies – State Library, State Museum, State Archives, State Arts Council, State Humanities Council, State Historic Preservation Office – who have an obligation (whether legal or moral) to assist their constituents following a disaster
  • Representatives of state, county, and local emergency management (EM) agencies
  • Representatives of national, regional, or state museum associations

Although the information is relevant to all cultural institutions, we’d like to keep participation in the live webinar down to a manageable number so the instructor can field questions that apply primarily to state cultural and EM agencies. Our aim is to provide information that’s most useful to network members, who will then be better equipped to help their constituents.

The webinar will be recorded, and once it’s been posted to the State Heritage Emergency Partnership website,, you can notify your constituents of its availability.

Registration Fee
None! Thanks to funding by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the State Heritage Emergency Partnership 2014 Webinar Series is free. Registration for each webinar is required for attendance.
