Disasters can change lives forever. While we can’t stop destructive events from happening, we can, as a Union, assist our members with their recovery following these difficult circumstances. AFA established the Disaster Relief Fund after September 11th to assist our members whose lives were placed in harm’s way. Following a declaration of a federal disaster area by the President of the United States, AFA members and retirees whose primary residence is in the counties listed below and who have suffered damage and/or dislocation, are eligible for $200.00 from the AFA-CWA Disaster Relief Fund.  This act of support is made possible by the generosity of your fellow union sisters and brothers with AFA.

Affected Texas Counties include:  Aransas, Bee, Brazoria, Calhoun, Chambers, Colorado, Fayette, Fort Bend, Galveston, Goliad, Hardin, Harris, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Kleberg, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Newton, Nueces, Orange, Refugio, Sabine, San Jacinto, San Patricio, Victoria, Waller, Wharton

Affected Florida Counties include: Broward, Charlotte, Clay, Collier, Duval, Flagler, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Putnam, Sarasota, St. Johns
