Help After A Disaster
Recovery is defined as, "The return to normal conditions; the process of restoring a community to normal following a major disaster." Activities are traditionally associated with providing Federal supplemental disaster recovery assistance under a Presidential major disaster declaration. These activities usually begin within days after the event and continue after the response activities cease.
