About this Publication
From the terrorist attacks on September 11th to Hurricane Sandy, human-made and natural disasters present challenges and opportunities for the field of affordable housing and community economic development to enhance community resilience.
With contributions from the General Counsel and staff of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and a range of housing and community economic development practitioners, Building Community Resilience Post-Disaster takes a broad and practical approach to examining equitable disaster recovery frameworks that expand opportunities in communities for affordable housing and strong local economies.
This resource provides the post-disaster legal and regulatory framework, important lessons learned from prior disasters, and tools to foster the recovery of affordable housing and community economic development. Practitioners seeking recommendations for future disaster recovery efforts will find the case studies of natural and human-made disasters and the resources section particularly helpful.
The book looks at:
Federal Post-Disaster Financing and Funding Programs
State and Local Governments' Roles
Equity and Human Rights Approaches
Roles of Nonprofits and Religious Organizations
Public Housing Restoration and Demolition
Short Term and Long Term Fair Housing Consequences
