CTA Disaster Relief Fund
Summary of Benefits
The CTA Disaster Relief Fund, administered by the FACT Foundation, exists to provide financial assistance to CTA members who have experienced significant losses as a result of disasters in the state of California.
To better serve CTA’s members, The Disaster Relief Fund now provides four different benefits. These different benefits are summarized below. Please refer to the instruction pages for each for eligibility, qualification criteria and verification requirements.
1) Standard Grant: CTA members may receive up to $1,500 for significant economic hardship related to damage to their primary residence, displacement or disruption in required utilities.
2) Catastrophic Damage Grant: Recipients of the Standard Grant may be eligible for up to another $1,500 if damages exceed $50,000.
3) Temporary Displacement Grant: A grant of up to $500 may be available for members who are displaced from their primary residence as the result of a disaster, but do not meet the requirements for a Standard Grant.
4) School Site Grant: Members may receive up to $500 for damage to their classroom.
Interested members are encouraged to contact their local office, the nearest Regional Resource Center or the CTA website for an application form. The completed form must be returned to the member’s Chapter President for verification.
Note: It is intended that Disaster Relief Fund payments are for expenses not compensated for by insurance or otherwise.
