Disaster: Information and Resources for People with Disabilities

Following the recent disastrous events on the Gulf Coast, the ADA National Network posted “Hurricane Harvey Emergency Resources” and the National Rehabilitation Information Center (NARIC) posted “After the Disaster: Recovery.” Some resources listed are specific to Texas and Louisiana, and others are more general; there is information on how people with disabilities can obtain or replace assistive technologies and durable medical equipment, find temporary accessible housing, get assistance with repairs and rebuilding, and more.

Also, look for the “Emergency Preparedness and Evacuation” section in our Resources webpage for more information about how to plan and respond to disasters and emergencies.
