We are actively working on projects to support first responders and decision-makers related to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Analysis Platform for Risk, Resilience and Expenditure in Disasters
The APRED project is focused on finding the connections and relationships between disaster risk, resilience, and cost, using a rich data set of documented outcomes for federal disaster recovery efforts. This project, funded by the Economic Development Administration (EDA), will provide an analysis of the outcomes and impacts of FY2012 disaster supplemental appropriation funds spent at the local, county, and state level for disaster relief over a 6-year period, using reporting required under the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA)
