NPS Main Street Community Disaster Preparedness and Resilience
Disasters can have a devastating effect on historic buildings, small business owners, and the local economy. Although we can’t avoid disasters, we can prepare for them. Funded through the National Park Service Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), the Main Street Community Disaster Preparedness and Resilience program will convene experts and stakeholders, create a clearinghouse of curated resources, and create a toolkit with strategies and worksheets for the most frequent disasters. To help prepare your commercial district for the next disaster, we will hold several workshops and invite submissions of resources to include in the resource clearinghouse and toolkit.
If you express interest in being added to our group of stakeholders, you will receive email updates about workshop registration and toolkit information.
