Federal Post-Disaster Recovery: A Review of Federal Programs

May 18, 2010

Abstract

Approximately 50 stakeholders came together at Brookings to identify and prioritize the biggest barriers within key
federal programs that hinder timely, quality, and flexible post-disaster recovery efforts at the state and local levels.
The roundtable also served as an opportunity for stakeholders to provide concrete recommendations on how to remedy the federal approach and those programs (or provide new tools) for improving the overall federal partnership with states, localities, nonprofits and the private sector in post-disaster recovery. This brief summarizes the key takeaways, barriers, and suggestions for improvement that emerged from that discussion.
