Emergency Funding Following Disasters
On occasion, LSC makes available special funding to help meet the emergency needs of its grantees located in disaster areas. When funding is available, only current LSC recipients in federally declared disaster areas, as identified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), are eligible to apply for such emergency funds. Information on federally-declared disaster areas is available at http://www.fema.gov/disasters.
