The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) planned a convening of more than 850 organizations that are part of the Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition (DHRC) for Oct, 2019. The conference met to address systematic racial, income, and accessibility challenges in disaster recover. In preparation for the convening, the NLIHC and the Fair Share Housing Coalition set the stage in this report by examining barriers to equitable recovery. The report covers four main topics:
- emergency planning and response,
- post-disaster housing needs,
- long term recovery needs, and
- mitigation and resiliency.
Access the second report for Policy Recommendations that came out of the Oct, 2019 convening.
