Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

NADO’s 2012 Innovation Awards recognized 64 projects from 22 states for their creative approaches to regional community and economic development, including the project described below. Click here for the full list of winners.

The Community Economic Recovery Guidebook provides economic development organizations, local civic leaders, elected officials, chambers and business support groups with a framework of action for local economic resiliency due to natural disasters. The EDA Disaster Recovery Collaborative of Wisconsin, led by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), partnered with four regional planning commissions on the project, including award applicant North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (NCWRPC). The guidebook connects disaster management functions with economic principles to identify key issues and suggest actions before and after disaster by providing a collection of case studies and best practice tools highlighting the scope of economic damage caused by floods. The manual’s goal is to serve as a resource for designing better economic recovery efforts from future flooding.
