Disaster Cost Reimbursement
Through the State Private Nonprofit Organizations Assistance Program
June 5, 2012

The California State Private Nonprofit Organizations Assistance Program (PNPOAP) allows certain eligible Private Nonprofits (PNP) or an Intermediary PNP applicant to receive state assistance for extraordinary costs incurred while providing assistance at the request of local agencies during a state disaster event. After a state disaster has been declared, an eligible PNP applicant may apply for reimbursement for the extraordinary cost of performing an essential community service at the request of an affected local agency.

The documents listed below are provided for your convenience. We recommend that you visit the PNPOAD web page for the latest information and documents.
