Regional Disaster Housing Recovery Plan (RDHRP)
The Regional Disaster Housing Regional Plan is now available by contacting your local RCPT member; the plan is the first document of its kind and provides guidance for decision makers and key participants after a catastrophic event and outlines a coordinative structure for response between government, nonprofit, and private sector entities across the country’s largest metropolitan area.
We have combined efforts and re-created the Disaster Housing and Sheltering planning team into one Post-Disaster Sheltering/Housing planning team. Our next meeting will be Thursday, July 19, 2012, at the RIC. The topic will be the Participatory Urban Playbook. Please contact Natalie Wright at email@example.com if you are interested in joining our team.
The reconfigured team will be creating the Housing Recovery Service Center Plan, a coordinated model that facilitates housing recovery for as many people as possible in the shortest amount of time. The plan will provide jurisdictions with a customizable template on how set up, operate, and manage a one-stop facility where agencies and organizations providing housing recovery services can come together to efficiently and effectively assist individuals and communities impacted by a catastrophic incident. The plan will comprise several components that are all related to the development and delivery of programs and services for post-disaster recovery.
We have begun drafting the Block Grant Playbook, the Housing Recovery Center Plan, and the Participatory Urban Planning Toolkit. We look forward to working with our planning team partners to develop these documents.
We have held meetings with planning team members in New York and New Jersey who will be the end users of the Block Grant Playbook. A meeting in Connecticut is being coordinated. Please contact Natalie Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate.
