April 16 - 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Housing providers should be aware of the external disaster planning process and understand their role in supporting the process by participating and providing information necessary to prevent the loss of life and property in the event of a disaster. This workshop describes the leadership and coordinator responsibilities of public-sector housing providers as they interact with external emergency operations and planning functions that take place at the county and municipal levels.
The presenters with address how SHIP-DR and other funding sources may contribute to disaster recovery. Topics include disaster-related documentation required, avoiding duplication of benefits, disaster-related repair considerations, using SHIP with CDBG-DR, HHRP, and more. Participants will learn about innovative best practices in pre–and post disaster for temporary housing, rapid repair, and mitigation. Presenters in this training will include local government staff who will share their recovery work from past disasters.
The presentations and group exercises will reference theFloridaHousing Coalition’s new publication, “Florida Disaster Management Guide for Housing.” This workshop should be attended by SHIP administrators, housing staff and volunteer responders.
