Webinar Recording: Storm Recovery and Resources

Posted 2024-01-16

On January 16, Island Institute hosted a webinar with Maine Department of Marine Resources Commissioner Patrick Keliher and Department of Economic, Community Development Commissioner Heather Johnson, and Maine Emergency Management Agency Director, Mitigation, Planning and Recovery Anne Fuchs.

Listen in and hear directly from these State officials about what to do now and what to expect in the coming weeks and months. Topics include: 

  • Roles and responsibilities of various state agencies 
  • Processes and timelines to access federal assistance funding 
  • Existing programs and resources for recovery and relief 
  • Special considerations for working waterfront businesses, homeowners, and municipalities
  • And more!

To address additional questions from the webinar, we have compiled more information about the most frequently asked questions.

Please see our Storm Response Resources page for an up-to-date list of resources related to storm recovery. We are continuing to assess community impact and need in the wake of this disaster and will be in touch with additional programmatic responses and support as they become available.
