about FEMA: Federal disaster resources will be dependent on
your (or your arts group/business) being registered at FEMA.
Go to www.disasterassistance.gov.

NOTE: Performing Arts groups: The federal legislation that
controls eligibility had some limitations after 9/11, which
the Chair of NYSCA, Richard Schwartz, was able to work with
the Pataki administration to have lifted. This means that
Performing Arts groups may be told they are ineligible.
Please let us know if this happens to you.
