UPCOMING WEBINAR 1/30: FEMA 101: Overview of the DHS Center for Faith and Opportunity Initiatives and FEMA Components

Everyday around the world, faith-based organizations serve the needs of people. They are most often not deployed by government, rather they act to accomplish their mission of serving others. Government works best when it partners and empowers those organizations with resources and technical assistance. This is never more evident than in times of disaster.

Join this webinar to learn how the DHS Center for Faith and Opportunities Initiatives (DHS Center) is working with houses of worship and nonprofits, connecting with FEMA and other federal partners. Featured speakers include the DHS Center, FEMA’s Individual Assistance (IA), Public Assistance (PA), Individual and Community Preparedness Division (ICPD) and Intergovernmental Affairs (IGA).
