Assisting Small Businesses When Disaster Strikes
The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA) awarded a grant to support five disaster economic recovery coordinator positions that work to support economic recovery efforts in Florida in the wake of Hurricane Irma. Disaster Recovery Coordinators for each locality support enhanced recovery efforts by helping coordinate the efforts of local governments, economic development organizations, and individual business. This project also provides direct assistance in navigating and accessing the numerous resources, available from multiple agencies, to aid in recovery and resilience activities.
Would you like a Disaster Recovery Coordinator to present to your group? TBRPC offers a free presentation that examines the economic impact of a disaster on small businesses and discusses useful practices that organizations can implement to help prepare for a disaster event. An overview of business continuity planning and steps to recovery are also explored.
