Are you aware that the CTA Disaster Relief Fund provides financial assistance to CTA members who have experienced significant losses due to disasters in California?
The Disaster Relief Fund is a separate special fund for the members of CTA. Money for the fund comes directly from members’ contributions. Thanks to this tradition of good will and generosity, members can turn to their professional organization for assistance with dignity.

- Standard: Up to $1,500 for significant economic hardship related to damage to the member’s primary residence, displacement, or disruption in required utilities;
- Catastrophic: Recipients of the Standard Grant may be eligible for up to another $1,500 if damages exceed $50,000;
- Temporary Displacement: Up to $500 for members who are displaced from their primary residence as the result of a disaster, but do not meet all the requirements for a Standard Grant; and
- School Site: Up to $500 for damage to classrooms.
