The American Maritime Officers Membership Assistance Program (MAP) is a permanent, independent, tax-exempt and voluntary disaster relief fund established by the national executive board of AMO to aid AMO members, applicants for membership in AMO and AMO retirees who suffer damage or loss during natural disasters—hurricanes, wildfires, earthquakes, tornadoes, mud slides, tsunami.
The fund was established after Hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans and other Gulf Coast communities in Louisiana, Texas and Alabama. AMO made an initial contribution to the fund, which is now sustained by individual tax-deductible contributions. The fund has provided benefits to AMO families whose homes were damaged as the result of natural disasters and severe storms.
Benefits from the AMO Membership Assistance Program are paid in varying amounts determined exclusively by need.
The application for relief benefits under the Membership Assistance Program is available online. CLICK HERE to open the form.
