Recovery strategy

Advise local leaders on an overall approach to recovery that addresses the greatest need and sets up communities for long-term recovery, resilience, and justice

Municipal staffs and budgets are stretched thin. We’re working alongside government leaders, advocates, and foundations to develop recovery plans that maximize impact, prioritize the use of local and stimulus funds, attract private and philanthropic support, and take concrete steps to drive systemic change. This crisis is unique, and there is no playbook for recovery, but our strategies are based on several core principles: a commitment to engage impacted communities, targeted funding based on need and what other funds can be leveraged, and a commitment to use recovery planning to address not just immediate needs but also the challenges that pre-existed the pandemic.
