Weathering disasters together

Disaster response

For all Society members and Kentuckians impacted by the devastating storms and tornadoes, we are here to provide resources as they become available. 

President Biden has approved Kentucky’s request for an emergency disaster declaration. The President has instructed the federal government to provide support to state and local recovery authorities. Please feel free to email aallen@kycpa.org with any specific concerns. 

Guest Jerry Shreiber, CPA, also known as "Master of Disaster", shares information and resources regarding disaster prep and recovery.
