State Spending on Disasters

The Pew Charitable Trusts will stream its event What Do States Spend on Natural Disasters? on July 25, 2018, 9:00-10:30 a.m. EDT. Government spending on natural disasters is on the rise, with FEMA’s public assistance program recording eight of its most expensive years from 2007 to 2016. While federal policymakers are considering ways to control rising costs, they are doing so without comprehensive data on the contributions made by state governments. To help inform federal efforts, Pew is hosting this discussion about how comprehensive tracking of state expenditures could help all levels of government more effectively manage the growth in natural disaster spending.

Update: The Diva tuned into the webcast on July 25th. The webcast is available here. 

As of August 30th, some additional details re the webinar.
