The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) scheduled six sessions of a free online webinar open to the whole community for Public Assistant applicants impacted by Hurricane Laura. This one-hour training will help participants understand how to purchase in compliance with federal rules during emergencies such as Hurricane Laura and other exigent circumstances. FEMA provides financial assistance to state, local, tribal and territorial governments, houses of worship and other nonprofit organizations, institutions of higher education, and other non-federal entities. All FEMA grant programs are subject to federal procurement rules, which simplify and expedite the procurement process in order to more quickly meet recovery needs in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. A session already took place on Sept. 2, but the five remaining webinars are still available.
