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.
