Office of Emergency Management Gift Donation Registry

The Legislation

New York State Executive Law § 29-j authorizes the Office of Emergency Management (“OEM”) to accept assistance for the purpose of preparing for, responding to, or recovering from a state disaster emergency.  Such assistance may include gifts and donations of real or personal property from public or private sources.  This assistance may be used to support State or local disaster operations, or it may be distributed to disaster response organizations supporting local disaster operations.  Section 29-j requires that the Office of Emergency Management maintain a database of all assistance accepted during a state disaster emergency.  This database must be made available to the public on the OEM website.  In accordance with this statutory requirement, this page will contain information on all assistance accepted by OEM during a state disaster emergency.
