Hurricane Harvey devastated the Gulf Coast of Texas over the last week and reminded all of us who work and volunteer in history organizations that disaster preparedness is critical. Finding help when you are in recovery mode is equally critical.

AASLH has collected resources from various organizations for institutions and individuals recovering from hurricanes, flooding, and other disasters to help provide assistance during this crucial time:

The Heritage Emergency National Task Force (HENTF) provides resources for cultural organizations recovering from a disaster.

The American Alliance of Museums (AAM) has also published a comprehensive list of resources for disaster recovery that includes helpful phone numbers and websites for advice and consultation for museums in active disaster recovery:

AASLH also provides many helpful resources on our website:
