Partnerships for Recovery Across the Sectors
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.
