In 2017, we witnessed the raw power of nature in multiple disasters from unprecedented flooding to enormous hurricanes and devastating wildfires. Organizations like the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are there to help, but for communities struggling to recover, the long road has just begun.
These presentations will walk through steps for leveraging federal funds for disaster recovery and hazard mitigation following a federal disaster declaration. Tribal governments and nonprofits will learn how to model success by introducing practical strategies and real-life examples designed to ensure communities receive needed resources after a destructive event. Benefits include access to additional funding, reduced risks of disallowed costs, strengthened program oversight, and better grant outcomes.
In this final session, Lucy will walk through actions tribal communities need to take in advance of a disaster to maximize recovery dollars following a disaster. She will provide practical tips on managing federal grants after disaster strikes. Discover how to spot common causes for reimbursement requests being denied by the funding agency and learn more about avoiding the expensive consequences of disaster fraud.
