Recovery Resources

State, local, tribal and territorial government officials are primarily responsible for managing disaster recovery in their communities. Identifying and managing resources can be a significant burden to local governments, who often do not know where to start.

These resources provide a starting point for local officials to begin and maintain whole community recovery.
