  • Description:
    Funded under the Hurricane Sandy Recovery and Rebuilding Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2013, the two-year research grants aim to determine the best ways communities can prepare for and recover from natural disasters like hurricanes. CDC will award $7.1 million to 13 grantees over a two year period.

    Grantees will focus on three priority areas: mold mitigation, characterization of death and disease after the hurricane, and evaluation of various public health systems responses.

    The results of this research will enhance the recovery process and contribute to the resiliency of this region and its communities to withstand future public health threats. Information from these studies is expected to provide insight on how to adapt and sustain our public health and health care systems during an event like this. In addition, the results can immediately be applied to communities recovering from similar events.
