General Disaster Recovery and Resilence Information

In an effort to support our Delta communities in times of natural or man-made disasters, DRA is working with multiple partners from the region and federal government to provide the most effective assistance to these communities after a disaster.

In October 2015, the DRA launched one of its newest and most ambitious initiatives to date: the Leading Economically Competitive and Resilient Communities (ECRC) program. ECRC is a series of 32, two-day intensive training workshops designed for mayors, county executives, other local elected officials, and economic development leadership. ECRC is an original DRA program developed in partnership with the International Economic Development Council (IEDC). You can find more information about upcoming ECRC workshops here.
