Acosta, J.D., Chandra, A., Xenakis, L., et al. (2015). Partnerships for Recovery Across the Sectors (PRACTIS) Toolkit. RAND Corporation.
This toolkit incorporates lessons learned from a study on New York City's recovery from Hurricane Sandy into guidance for local health departments (LHDs). The toolkit provides LHDs three tools: (1) a sample survey and steps for fielding the survey to help LHDs locate and identify the key community-based organizations (CBOs) that can contribute to disaster response and recovery, (2) a quality improvement guide and sample quality improvement report to help users form guidance concerning partnerships between LHDs and CBOs (and between CBOs), and (3) a tabletop recovery exercise for LHDs and CBOs.
