A Critical Role - Ten Policies States Need for Community Disaster Recovery

August 1, 2009

Release Date: 2009

BCLC has often been asked what some states have done well to recover from disasters, especially since other states seem to sputter in their recoveries. With the support of Allstate, we launched a project in 2009 to find out. We have proposed 10 critical policies that states need to become more disaster resilient and to recover quickly after disasters. These policies are based on extensive analysis of U.S. communities that have experienced disasters over the past 15 years.
