Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR)
The Monroe Group, LLC has engaged in a series of robust recovery programs for communities impacted by disasters; we recognize powerful forces driving change. Our firm addresses a dramatically increased demand in the disaster recovery sector for modern, nimble, and human-centered approaches. By fusing our disciplines, we have become a recognized industry leader in developing and managing initiatives to build more resilient communities.
Why Choose us?
We understand that Community Development and Disaster Recovery concerns the physical realm and the social, cultural, economic, political, and environmental aspects of a community. Therefore, disaster recovery and community development need to be intertwined, and effective disaster recovery is resilient community development. Resilient, intentionally equitable planning creates and fosters new opportunities for our communities at large.
Our firm and our public and private partners navigate large-scale recovery programs, which work with multiple funding streams, such as FEMA, the New York City, and State CDBG-DR Programs. Because of the experience, we garnered meaningful insight from disaster recovery successes and failures by working with previously established resiliency efforts across industries and communities throughout multiple states.
Real People. Resilient, thriving communities.
"I don't look past people… I see them. And I understand that good disaster recovery is when people are in a better position— structurally and financially—than before. These are the goals behind national, state, and local disaster recovery and community development funds."
