Wildfires: We’re Here to Help

CTA’s Disaster Relief Fund assists in the wake of wildfires

Members who have been impacted by the Kincade fire or other disasters can take advantage of CTA’s Disaster Relief Fund.

The fund provides four types of grants:

  • Standard: Up to $1,500 for significant economic hardship related to damage to the member’s primary residence, displacement, or disruption in required utilities.
  • Catastrophic: Recipients of the Standard Grant may be eligible for up to an additional $1,500 if damages exceed $50,000.
  • Temporary Displacement: Up to $500 for members displaced from their primary residence because of disaster (for more than seven days), but who do not meet requirements for a Standard Grant.
  • School Site: Up to $500 for damage to classrooms.

Any active CTA, Student CTA or CTA/NEA-Retired member in good standing is eligible to apply. Visit ctamemberbenefits.org/drf to apply or get further information.

NEA Member Benefits has a Disaster Relief Program for those affected by FEMA-declared major disasters. Many NEA MB partners offer special assistance to members in need. Click here for details.
