Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently announced the launch of a new interagency website called “Disaster Recovery Work In Group“. The purpose of the site is to allow federal disaster recovery officials to solicit public comments regarding disaster recovery from state, local and tribal partners and the public.
That information will be utilized by the federal government’s newly formed Long Term Disaster Recovery Working Group so as to: (1) allow stakeholders to submit ideas for disaster recovery, (2) articulate objectives for recovery assistance going forward, (3) identify examples of best practices in disaster recovery, (4) raise challenges and obstacles to the success of disaster recovery progams and activities, and (5) share thoughts, experiences and lessons learned with others who are involved in these disaster recovery planning and implementing activities.
