HENTF Dashboard for Hurricane Dorian Recovery
This dashboard, developed by the Heritage Emergency National Task Force, provides various resources, including available funding, for states affected by Hurricane Dorian (Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina). HENTF monitors the dashboard from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET; utilize the chat box if you need help!


Flood Recovery Resources for Tropical Storm Imelda
Tropical Storm Imelda has left immense flood waters, primarily affecting the Gulf coast, primarily in the Houston/Galveston area and western Louisiana. Please share these resources with any cultural institutions that may need help recovering.


National Disaster Recovery Fund for Archives
Originally established to address the stabilization and recovery needs of archival repositories affected by Hurricane Katrina, this fund now provides grants that support the recovery of archives collections from major disasters, regardless of region or repository type.
