How Schools and Higher Ed Institutions Can Access FEMA’s Public Assistance Program

9/19/17        Duration: 1.5 hour

Denise Yandle and Rachel Hildebrand, Senior Policy Advisor, Public Assistance Division, FEMA; Madeline Sullivan, Program Analyst, OSHS, ED; and Janelle W. Hughes, Communications Director, REMS TA Center.

On Tuesday, September 19, 2017, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET, the REMS TA Center and the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED) Office of Safe and Healthy Students (OSHS) hosted a Webinar in collaboration with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Public Assistance Division to share information about grants available to educational facilities following a presidentially declared major disaster that involves a public assistance clause. The Webinar provided an overview of FEMA’s Public Assistance Program, which awards funds to help repair, restore, and clean up educational facilities that have been damaged during a disaster, and assists with mitigation and recovery efforts.

Presenters described the process and specified eligibility requirements for institutions of higher education, public K-12 schools and school districts, and nonpublic K-12 schools. Presenters also fielded questions from participants during a dedicated Q&A session.

This 1 hour Webinar included a PowerPoint presentation. Following the presentation, the presenters answered participant questions in a Question and Answer session.

All webinar recordings are played back through either Adobe Connect Pro using an online Internet connection or
