ML398 Picking Up the Pieces: The First 30 days of Response & Recovery
Disasters like hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and wildfires are happening more frequently and causing more destruction. During the critical weeks and months immediately following, is there anything communities can do to speed the process, to reduce the losses, to become more resilient? By understanding the challenges of recovery and redevelopment prior to a disaster occurring, organizations are better able to help maneuver complicated legal and political processes more quickly and effectively. Participants will learn government processes following a disaster, how to navigate funding programs, and lessons from the field to enable community development corporation (CDCs) to effectively assist the community. NOTE: This course is part of our Disaster Preparation and Response 3-course series.
