Welcome to the Analysis Platform for Risk, Resilience and Expenditure in Disasters (APRED)

APRED provides information on the Major Disaster Declarations declared under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act that may support eligibility for investment assistance from EDA (the U.S. Economic Development Administration).The EDA provides investment assistance to communities and regions to device and implement long-term economic recovery strategies through a variety of construction and non-construction projects.

APRED also allows economic development practitioners to explore the disaster resilience scores of their county, likewise, the number of businesses within their county that could be more vulnerable to hazards and disasters because of the nature of the business, i.e., low infrastructure mobility, high reliance on public utilities like water and electricity, etc. Further, the end-users can also use APRED to review the storm history of the given county.
