The roots come from fusing two distinct life cycles— Community Development and Disaster Recovery. It is important to recognize that the ideas from either discipline can inform the other to create both resilience and a sense of community. We have leveraged these leading concepts and practices and adapted them into our “fusion” approach.
Our CDBG-DR program management Subject Matter Experts equip/enable entities with “fused” sensibilities, capabilities and practices aligned to program goals, the national objective, and community needs
Community Development and Disaster Recovery not only concerns the physical realm but also its social, cultural, economic, political and environmental aspects of ‘community. When done right, it is a social and economic inclusion tool for communities and assures that they have a voice, ownership and, over time, mastery of their own progress.
