I am forwarding this e-mail from CERF in case some of you need help but do not know about them.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As you know, the East Coast is just beginning to take count of the devastation resulting from Superstorm Sandy. CERF+ (Craft Emergency Relief Fund + Artists’ Emergency Resources) along with its partners in the National Coalition for Arts Preparedness and Emergency Response are just beginning to connect with the artists and arts organizations in the affected areas but it will be a long time before we understand the full toll on the cultural community. We do know that overall the damage is severe and widespread, as news reports show.

CERF+ is committed to helping and to keeping you informed about the ways in which you can help. To facilitate in this effort, we will be actively posting news and promoting exchanges on the CERF+ Facebook page. Please use this location to let us know what you are seeing and hearing about how this disaster has affected the arts community, and be sure to repeat our posts on your pages to help us get the word out to the whole arts community.

CERF+ has created the CERF+ Artists’ Relief Exchange. If you know an artist who needs help and/or if you can offer help (supplies, equipment, a place to stay or work, help in clean up, etc.), please join in this Exchange.

CERF+ has also set up an Emergency Response web page that compiles the most critical resources including tips on getting assistance from FEMA, a listing of arts sector emergency resources, and some of the most relevant parts of the Studio Protector Online Guide such as information about disaster assessment and salvage.

Finally, CERF+’s disaster relief assistance offers grants up to $3,000 and interest-free loans up to $8,000 for any professional craft artist who has suffered significant losses.

Please help us get the word out about the availability of our assistance, our important recovery resources and our need for the community's support at this time.

With warm regards,
Cornelia Carey
Executive Director

Thanks for this Chris,

Can this information be put on the main page of CAD so more people could get this information?

Annclaire (and Chris),

We're putting it up on the main Facebook CAD page rather than the CAD site. More traffic.
