Making Mitigation Work: A Webinar Series
Disaster Spending and Mitigation: A State-by-State Story

Speaker: Colin Foard, Associate Manager, Fiscal Federalism, The Pew Charitable Trusts

Webinar Description: This webinar will provide an overview of The Pew Charitable Trusts' recent work on natural disaster spending. Remarks will focus on how all levels of government—and states in particular—can manage rising disaster costs by improving how they track spending and by investing in mitigation. Research by Pew has found that disaster assistance is spread across many federal and state agencies and that comprehensive data, especially on what states spend, is missing. Better data could allow both federal and state policymakers to make more strategic decisions about how they spend on disasters, including mitigation measures that reduce the impact of future events—which a recent Pew analysis found saves money in every state and across disaster types.
