Cora Brown Fund Fact Sheet

The purpose of the Cora Brown Fund is to help provide for disaster-related needs that have not or will not be met by governmental agencies or any other organization, which has programs to address such needs. The Cora Brown Fund is for survivors of presidentially declared major disasters or emergencies not caused by or attributable to war. Disaster survivors do not apply for assistance from the fund; instead, they are identified and recommended by a FEMA Regional Director or his/her representatives, with assistance from other governmental agencies and voluntary disaster agencies.
