Relief for artists impacted by Hurricane Fiona

On September 18, 2022, Hurricane Fiona, a Category 1 storm, devastated Puerto Rico’s southwest coast triggering destructive flooding, mudslides, and an island-wide power blackout. Four fatalities have been reported, and more than 778,000 residents were without drinking water as of Monday. Rainfall totals exceeded 24” in several areas. 

Fiona’s landfall coincided with the 5-year mark since Hurricane Maria, a devastating Category 4 storm that decimated the island’s power grid and claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people. Since Hurricane Maria, infrastructure in Puerto Rico remains fragile, and many homes still had temporary blue tarp coverings, making the impacts of this storm more severe. 

CERF+ shares your concern for those impacted by the storm and we need your help. If you know craft artists who suffered significant losses as a result of the severe weather, please help us spread the word that they can apply for CERF+’s Emergency Relief grant program. Questions? Please contact

  • I was in Puerto Rico a few years ago, the infrastructure seemed fragile. I cannot imagine the devastation these people are living with. Thank you for this info Mary.
