Hurricane Recovery: Federal Government Provided a Range of Assistance to Nonprofits Following Hurricane Katrina and Rita

Government Accountability Office

July 1, 2010

Residents of the Gulf Coast continue to struggle to recover almost 5 years after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the area in August and September of 2005. In many cases the federal government coordinates with, and provides support to, nonprofit organizations in order to deliver recovery assistance to impacted residents. A better understanding of how the federal government works with nonprofit organizations to provide such assistance may be helpful for recovery efforts on the Gulf Coast as well as for communities affected by major 
disasters in the future.
