The Hurricane Michael Recovery Resources Portal provides online access to information that can help local governments, nonprofit organizations, the private sector and the philanthropic community in Florida locate resources for recovery from the storm.
The portal was developed by FEMA’s Integrated Recovery Coordination (IRC) group, which is coordinating federal support to the State of Florida and Panhandle communities. An important role for IRC is to identify financial and other resources to meet needs that FEMA, state and other programs cannot meet.
While FEMA programs are working to reimburse communities for eligible costs of response and recovery, there often are gaps between total costs and what FEMA can legally pay for. The philanthropic portal is one tool that IRC is using to help connect community organizations with potential resources, including grants and technical assistance in the areas of housing, economic, natural and cultural resources and other aspects of community recovery.
