Developing HUD Disaster Response Strategies
How can HUD increase the effectiveness of the Department’s internal disaster response and recovery activities?

The project will be conduct a table top exercise for HUD leadership, in collaboration with the Office of Administration to examine approaches that could be implemented that would lead to improved performance in the aftermath of a disaster. This effort would remain sensitive to the incrementally, initially through examination of past documentation of the CDBG-DR program. Subsequent efforts would include discussions with CDBG-DG grantees and others to identify areas that were particularly effective and those that were perceived as burdensome or time consuming. Following the information collection phase, the project would identify topics and strategies that are seen as having potential to streamline the process.
