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.
