Increase your knowledge of disaster-related issues so you can better support disaster survivors as a legal aid advocate, pro bono attorney, or other volunteer.


You do not need expertise in disaster-related issues to begin providing assistance to low-income Americans. It is helpful, however, to become familiar with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), FEMA programs and appeals, and disaster-related civil legal issues such as housing, income maintenance, and employment. Stay up to date on these issues and keep an eye out for any special training that may become available.
