Community Decision Making and Financial Planning for Natural and Manmade Disasters

Grants and Contracts Details


This project, Community Decision Making and Financial Planning for Natural and Man- made Disasters, will serves as a guide for Extension agents and local practitioners - those working through the process of educating governmental entities or a community’s leadership in attaining a desired level of financial resiliency for communities vulnerable to tropical natural disaster events. When assessing the financial health of a community, potential risks and assets to be appropriated during a disaster and recovery are the central topics aligning communities with resiliency planning. We will be working with our partners, Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners, Kentucky League of Cities, and Kentucky Association of Counties to create a manual and provide workshops for elected officials to better prepare for uncertainties.
