In 2005, Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. In addition to extreme loss of life and property in Mississippi and neighboring Louisiana, the hurricane damaged and destroyed a great deal of the region’s cultural treasures. In the months and years after Hurricane Katrina’s landfall, the NEH awarded more than $2 million in emergency grants to rescue and preserve artwork, books, manuscripts, archival records, and other cultural artifacts.
