The Board discussed the possibility of expanding the scope of the NDRFA to international distribution and concluded that, although the Board is open to the idea, further consideration would have to await significant development of the fund.SAA Foundation 2018In September 2005, the Society of Southwest Archivists and the Society of American Archivists created the SSA-SAA Emergency Disaster Assistance Grant Fund—a fund established to address the stabilization and recovery needs of archival repositories that were directly affected by Hurricane Katrina. In October of that year, the Fund was expanded to include repositories affected by Hurricane Rita. Working together, in August 2007 the SSA and the SAA Foundation Board of Directors expanded the original scope of the fund to provide grants that support the recovery of archival collections from major disasters, regardless of region or repository type. The fund was renamed the National Disaster Recovery Fund for Archives to reflect the expanded scope of the grant.Zanish-Belcher 2019, 12–13Fortunately, the SAA Foundation’s National Disaster Recovery Fund for Archives was expanded in 2017 to include eligibility for Mexico and non-US Caribbean Islands and to award up to $5,000 in grant funding.
