Emergency Disaster Information for Delta Residents

Natural disasters often affect our Delta residents, especially those living in Louisiana and Mississippi due to recurrent flooding. DRA stands vigilant and ready to support and serve our communities. Below you will find helpful links to recovery effort information and resources. If you know of additional resources that should be added to this list, please email them to Andrew Moreau at amoreau@dra.gov.

When natural disasters strike our Delta communities, you can also find up-to-date information on our Facebook page and Twitter account.

General Disaster Recovery and Resilience 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.
