Texas Strong Summit
Jan 13 @ 4:30 pm – Jan 16 @ 2:15 pm

The unprecedented number of catastrophic disasters that have occurred in our nation in recent years has put a severe constraint on resources available to help communities respond to and recover from disaster. Texas alone has received eight major disaster declarations since May 2015—including Hurricane Harvey. As a result, finding creative community-based, public-private solutions to mitigate against post-disaster resource constraints has become our new normal.
