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.
