The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s International and Philanthropic Affairs Division invite you to their upcoming Annual Disaster Funders Call with:
- Solomon Greene, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research,
- Marion Mollegen McFadden, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development, and
- Tennille Parker, Director, Disaster Recovery and Special Issues Division.
This year’s funders-only Disaster Call will feature updates on HUD’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery and Mitigation (CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT) Programs, with a focus on rural communities, as well as provide updates on steps HUD is taking to incorporate feedback from partners on the grant programs. HUD will also share updates on its new rapid response program to address homelessness in areas hit by disasters.
There will be an opportunity to discuss how HUD and its philanthropic counterparts can work together to meet the needs of a community through recovery, resilience, mitigation, and adaptation efforts. The agenda will also feature the Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s President & CEO, Patricia McIlreavy, who will be providing an update on the trends, challenges, and opportunities with disaster philanthropy in the United States. The presentations will be followed by an open discussion period where we will welcome all attendees to share their thoughts and ask questions.
Please RSVP directly to HUD's Katie Marinari at Katherine.C.Marinari@hud.gov by Tuesday, November 22, 2022, if you would like to take part in this conversation. To ensure speakers address the priorities of philanthropic partners, you are welcome and encouraged to submit questions along with your RSVP.
An invite to the virtual meeting will be sent to all registered participants in a follow-up e-mail.
