The Long Term Disaster Recovery Center's goal is to assist those impacted by providing workshops designed to address the needs of tribal members, which currently range from the trauma of fire storms to the loss of tribal cultural items. The Center is conducting a needs assessment survey of tribal communities and tribal members impacted by the October 2017 fires in Lake, Mendocino, Napa and Sonoma Counties. The results of this survey will help us prioritize services, workshops and activities. Click here for the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JMJW32C
The Intertribal Long Term Recovery Foundation (ITLTRF)
The ITLTRF's Mission is to strengthen and enhance the coordination of area-wide disaster recovery efforts on tribal lands located in Southern California affected by wildfires and other disasters by working with tribal, federal, state, and local governmental agencies to: 1.) Share disaster relief information, 2.) Simplify access to disaster relief services, and 3.) Provide mutual assistance to tribal communities that have experienced natural disasters. The ITLTRF is providing the Center with capacity building support. To visit the Foundation website go to: http://www.itltrf.org/
The U.S. Census Bureau
The Bureau's OnTheMap for Emergency Management is a public data tool that provides a web-based interface to gauge the potential impact of disasters on the workforce and residents of a particular area. Users can gather detailed information on workers, population, and housing characteristics for hurricanes, floods, wildfires, winter storms, and federal disaster declaration areas.
