Rebuilding Together’s Disaster Readiness and Recovery program provides disaster mitigation, preparedness, response and long-term recovery support to help families and communities affected by natural disasters to rebuild their homes and lives. With natural and man-made disasters on the rise, their affiliate network focuses on community preparedness before the storm hits and the repair and rehabilitation of damaged housing stock in the aftermath. With a four-focus area approach of mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery, Rebuilding Together not only responds to disaster, but builds and strengthens community in the process.
Rebuilding Together received a grant from the Bain Capital Relief Fund in October 2021 following Hurricane Ida, a deadly and destructive hurricane that became the second-most damaging and intense hurricane to make landfall in Louisiana. Rebuilding Together set up an Ida Disaster Recovery Fund to specifically support the rebuilding of the communities impacted by Hurricane Ida.
