NDEM Webinar: Leadership and Decision Making in Disaster Recovery
Most government-operated disaster recovery efforts in America are failing. Disaster impacted communities often become siloed and lack the network required to learn from existing best practices. This leaves the workforce without the tools they need to assess community needs, develop an action plan, contract for services, or implement recovery efforts at scale. Additionally, after a disaster, it takes 12-18 months for long term government recovery programs to get started and the majority of these programs are slow to serve the most vulnerable populations post-disaster. This means that many communities are still trying to rebuild 10 years after a disaster. This is unacceptable as a nation.

Despite disasters occurring more frequently and with greater severity, we have not seen significant improvements in the efficiency or predictability of government-run programs. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of sharing of information and best practices between successful recovery programs and recently impacted communities.

In this webinar led by JR Sanderson, SBP's Senior Government Advisor, attendees will learn about common success factors and pitfalls in CDBG-DR programs. JR will also share insights from his time as the Director of the South Carolina Disaster Recovery Office which managed over $300 million in federal funds for recovery after the 2015 Severe Storm and Hurricane Matthew.
