With recent events such as major flooding Southern Alberta, tornadoes in Oklahoma, the Boston bombing, and the Newtown, CT school shooting, economic development organizations need to be informed of valuable crisis recovery resources for their communities. IEDC will host a webinar on how local and state officials can effectively collaborate with federal agencies on economic and business recovery efforts following a major disaster. 

The federal government is a significant resource for disaster preparedness and post-disaster economic recovery. Yet, navigating the labyrinth of various agencies, programs, and requirements can be an intimidating process. This webinar is designed to help economic developers understand how to more effectively access disaster recovery resources in the federal system. It will also provide highlights and tips from actual disaster recovery professionals on how to maximize available federal government resources and address potential roadblocks along the way to recover.

Attendees will learn:

• About the various federal tools and programs to assist in economic recovery and how local economic development interests can more effectively use these federal resources
• Details on the federal government's new National Disaster Recovery Framework
• How the federal government interacts with and assists state and local recovery stakeholders.
