Add to Calendar

Northern California Grantmakers will hold weekly calls to provide updates on the situation in fire-impacted communities, opportunities to provide support, and emergent issues. Join NCG each Tuesday from 10:30 am - 11:30 am. NCG is working with its partner funder networks across the state and around the country to address emergent questions and long-term recovery. 

This call will focus on emerging government assistance opportunities as well as communities excluded from government assistance programs. Speakers will share an update on the current status of the Northern California fires, assistance programs including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the impact of the fires on vulnerable immigrant communities.
