Recovery

FederalStateLocal COVID-19

Federal, state, and local governments should engage in post-disaster recovery efforts that reach all populations, including older adults, people with disabilities, and their caregivers. This includes providing technology infrastructure that enables rapid communications and easy, transparent access to necessary information. Disaster relief assistance and funding should be distributed equitably, fairly, and expeditiously. 

Rebuilding and recovery efforts should promote livability and resilience by encouraging: 

  • a diverse housing supply; 
  • a wide range of mobility options; 
  • access to safe, accessible, and sustainable public spaces; and 
  • proximity to necessary services.
