Addressing Damage from Hurricane Katrina to Humanities Collections HURRICANE KATRINA EMERGENCY GRANT

Heritage Preservation and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sponsor the Heritage Emergency National Task Force, a partnership of 40 federal agencies and national service organizations. Task force members constitute a nationwide resource of knowledge and assistance about disaster preparedness and response. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Heritage Preservation has been coordinating the special efforts of the Task Force and organizations in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama (and more recently Texas and Florida) eager to help salvage humanities collections. Heritage Preservation is serving as the liaison between FEMA and the cultural community and gathering information about relief efforts, damage to cultural heritage, health and safety, technical assistance, response, and recovery. Its website is being expanded and updated on a regular basis and publications about disaster recovery are being distributed.
