Helping Families Recover After Disaster

Disaster Recovery Resource Fairs

If you want to assist disaster victims on the road to recovery, it's important to understand the multiple challenges facing disaster victims. Understanding will help you reduce barriers and improve access to assistance programs.

A Disaster Recovery Resource Fair is a local, one-stop shop for disaster victims to access multiple assistance programs at one location. Hold a Disaster Recovery Resource Fair to reduce the many barriers people may encounter as they try to access disaster assistance programs and services.
