« Go to Upcoming Event List  

Each year, the United States is struck by disasters that severely affect States and local governments and utilities. The list of natural disasters includes hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, snowstorms, and droughts. The effects of disasters may be limited to a single community, such as when a town is hit by a tornado, or they may be widespread, such as when a hurricane affects an entire region of the country. Regardless of the scope of a disaster, the affected utilities, individuals, communities and States often need the assistance from the Federal government when responding to and recovering from an event. This assistance is available through FEMA under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. § 5121 – 5207.

Speaker Mark Landa (Sullivan & Ward, P.C.) will describe the process for obtaining a Presidential Disaster Declaration, the application for federal assistance and the new challenges faced by the states, communities and non–profits in obtaining funding to rebuild and, surprisingly, in keeping that funding once it is awarded.

Mark Landa, Sullivan & Ward, P.C.
