To assist Continuums of Care in New Jersey affected by Hurricane Sandy, the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a tool that will help enhance their capacity to respond and recover from Sandy as well as future disasters.
The goals of the Directory of Disaster Response and Recovery Responses are to:
Provide Continuums of Care (CoC) a guide to the development of disaster/emergency preparedness,
Help CoCs better understand the disaster/emergency response and recovery process; and
Enhance CoC capacity to respond and recover from disasters/emergencies by providing an inventory of potential resources addressing both organizational and individual needs. Encourage coordination and collaboration between CoCs and disaster/emergency organizations.
