Hurricanes Disaster Fund

Hurricanes Disaster Fund

On September 1, 2017, the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association created the Hurricane Disaster Fund to support FBA Chapters, Sections, and Divisions and legal aid and other organizations in response to the immediate need in local communities for legal assistance in the aftermath of the devastating storms. In light of the latest hurricanes, the Foundation Board voted to expand the fund to cover those.

The Hurricanes Disaster Fund will support FBA Chapters, Sections, Divisions, and Members - and local legal aid and other organizations working to provide legal services to impacted communities in the aftermath of Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria. A committee will administer the fund and make sure applications meet the eligibility and evaluation criteria.

These organizations have fully operational staff in place in the hardest hit areas of Texas, and are on the ground working within their communities to provide much needed legal assistance.
