Disaster Relief Information

October 31, 2012 · 1 Comment

Editor's note: This material is re-printed with kind permission from Grantmakers in the Arts.

With extraordinarily wide-spread destruction in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, grantmakers across the country will be looking to help with the cleanup and rebuilding. Here are some resources to remember:

  • As always, for artists, CERF+ is a great place to start. And their Facebook page is especially worth noting for information coming in as the damage stories unfold.
  • Arts Ready is a resource that should be remembered in the wake of this devastating event.
  • Council of New Jersey Grantmakers has a Disaster Grantmaking Teleconference scheduled for November 1 at 2:00 p.m. EST. No doubt this call has become much more imperative since it was initially scheduled.
  • Center for Disaster Philanthropy has a "Hurricane Sandy Hub" where information is being assembled.
  • Likewise from Council on Foundations, who has a list of resources as well.

    I was in Far Rockaway when Sandy hit. It was extremely unnerving to see how fast the water was coming into my apt. It came down the stairs to the basement apt. I had just gotten into six weeks prior. People that live there can tell you that there were and will be problems with basement apartments there so why do landlords want to patch up the apartments? So that you will return? I personally will fight to move on. Where I was living is considered Zone A. I am entitled to and am waiting for a transfer from Sec. 8. I was told by customer service not to pay rent. If anyone can help me in my moving progress please contact me at Thank you alaiye agemo peace.
