July Webinar: Innovations on Affordable Housing

Housing Challenges and Solutions Post Hurricane

July 11, 2019 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

ICMA Practice Areas: 2, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10

Local governments in Florida are the most prepared disaster preparedness agencies in the country; in part, because they have had a lot of practice. However, with every hurricane, the issue of housing (temporary and permanent) is a major problem that confronts all agencies. How does a government sufficiently prepare? What are the resources available to assist with this issue? What lessons were learned from the disaster in the panhandle last year? The Disaster Housing Recovery Director with the Florida Housing Coalition will provide an informal overview of this issue and offer recommendations for local governments.
