Economic Recovery Volunteer Program- Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria
Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Texas coast on Friday, August 25, 2017 and lingered over the Gulf for several days. The extended rainfall led to catastrophic flooding across many counties and parishes in Texas and Louisiana. Then along came Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which battered the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Florida and numerous other southern states. Through generous grants of the U.S. Economic Development Administration, IEDC is providing a range of assistance in the economic recovery of these regions. The aim of these efforts are to help local economic developers and community leaders get businesses back up and running and increasing the post-disaster survival rate of local companies so people can back to work as quickly as possible. IEDC is gathering volunteers to serve in various capacities. Typical activities may be providing advice on what worked in your community in the past and how to prioritize recovery activities, gathering data for impact from local businesses or serving as an instructor or presenter on key economic recovery topics. Assignments will rotate and continue over the next two years. Grants will pay for all travel expenses.
