The Community Economic Recovery Guidebook

The State of Wisconsin recently produced the Community Economic Recovery Guidebook: Safeguarding Your Economy From Disaster, a disaster recovery guidebook designed for economic development organizations, chambers of commerce, business support groups, civic leaders and elected officials. This publication is a project of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation under the U.S. EDA grant award 06- 69-05328. The manual connects disaster management functions with economic principles to identify key issues and suggestive actions which a community should take both before and after a disaster. This resource also provides an important framework for discussion for local business and community leaders to hold when developing a a post-disaster economic recovery strategy for their community.
