FEMA Field Guide for the Arts

Project Overview: With funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Coalition for Arts’ Preparedness and Emergency Response (NCAPER) proposes to research and create a written guide for the arts sector that translates FEMA guidelines and those of other federal agencies regarding regulations, procedures and forms to be used immediately following a national disaster.  The guide will give artists and arts organizations step-by-step assistance in navigating the bureaucracy throughout the process in identifying and applying for Federal funding and other assistance. Although the final audience for the field guide is artists and arts and cultural organizations, it is also intended for use by national, state and local arts agencies serving the arts sector for the purpose of informational guidance in preparation for such disasters.
