On July 24, FEMA’s Individual and Community Preparedness Division will host a free webinar on strategies for meeting community preparedness funding needs.

  • Michelle Hanneken, the Citizen Corps program coordinator for the state of Illinois, will discuss strategic planning and increasing the sustainability of our programs in the new grant environment.
  • Stella Hickey, the Fire Corps Advocate for the state of Oregon and secretary of Oregon’s Citizen Corps Council, will review the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt process and how our programs can use this status to tap into donations, fundraising, and other sources of revenue.
  • Rachel Jacky, the national Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program director, will discuss alternatives to 501(c)(3) status.
  • Michael Paddock, the CEO of Grants Office LLC, will talk about pursuing funding from the private sector and community foundations.
