Disaster recovery is a time of tremendous pressure and work at the community level. Local officials are faced with pressure to rebuild quickly, communicate with stakeholders, resolve conflicts, seek funding from a variety of different agencies, and respond to new grant, contract, and financial requirements. However, disaster recovery is also a time of significant opportunity for communities to rebuild in a thoughtful, equitable, and resilient way.
The resources in this toolkit are geared toward helping community leaders through the long-term disaster recovery process and are intended to be useful at any phase of recovery.
