Recovering from a disaster is a gradual process. It is the State's priority during disaster to build healthier, more resilient communities. Often, after a disaster, the recovery process involves mitigation projects and allows for the opportunity to learn from the event and thus create preparedness plans that allow for a better response.
Recovery planning at all levels of government defines leadership roles and responsibilities and can assist with coordination and better utilization of existing resources following a disaster to best meet the needs of communities and individuals in their recoveries. Local governments can facilitate improved access to resources and foster coordination among all stakeholders by focusing on nine key functional areas:
  • Agriculture and Environmental
  • Commodity Points of Distribution
  • Community Planning and Capacity Building
  • Disaster Recovery Centers
  • Economic Support
  • Health and Social Services Houseing
  • Infrastructure Systems
  • Population Reception
