Post-Disaster Redevelopment Planning Guide

The Florida Post-Disaster Redevelopment Planning Guide provides valuable resources for coastal communities. Topics include land use, economic recovery, funding sources, infrastructure, health and social services, and environmental impacts. The guide documents how six local governments successfully established a long-term post-disaster redevelopment plan.

The project was a partnership effort between the Florida Coastal Management Program, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, and the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Funds were provided through Section 309 of the CZMA, with additional grants leveraged from FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. The Florida Coastal Management Program also funded a web-based training video that provides advanced tools and best practices to help communities implement the resilience activities in their redevelopment plans.
