Presidential Declarations (See afacwa.org/drf.)

Florida Hurricane Ian DR-4673-FL  (declared 9/29/22)



We know that 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. AFA established the Disaster Relief Fund after September 11th to assist our members whose lives were placed in harm’s way.  AFA members and retirees, whose primary residences are in the counties listed on the FEMA website are eligible for $200.00 from the AFA-CWA Disaster Relief Fund.  It is a gift made possible by the generosity of your fellow union sisters and brothers with AFA.  (See the AFA website for links to the FEMA site:   www.afacwa.org/drf.)


If you would like to apply for AFA-CWA Disaster Relief Funds, visit www.afacwa.org/drf and download the Disaster Relief Fund Application.  There are a few ways of submitting your application including:
