Health and Social Services Recovery Lessons Learned from the 2016 Louisiana Flooding

October 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


During response and recovery operations, local and state officials and community partners often have questions regarding how to navigate the different federal recovery programs, what challenges should be anticipated during recovery efforts, and what tips are available from other communities to help determine vulnerabilities and areas of focus for maximizing the recovery timeline.

Join this webinar to hear how Louisiana health and human services representatives: managed their recovery; organized, designed, and implemented recovery programs to be compliant with requirements; and delivered the best possible services to their communities. They will also discuss their lessons learned and how their experiences may help their counterparts and other leaders supporting disaster recovery in communities recovering from recent disasters.
