Disaster resource fairs

Those that experience a disaster face many challenges on the path to recovery.

What is a disaster recovery resource fair? It is a local event for people to access important disaster-related programs and services at one location. Holding a disaster recovery resource fair may reduce barriers such as:

  • Not able to track down needed services because a person does not have reliable transportation or communication device (computer, phone, etc.)
  • Not having the time or energy to track down all the needed services
  • Not knowing where and how to get started — feeling overwhelmed

Access resources to host your own fair

The following materials will help you and your community partners host your own disaster recovery resource fair.
