RAND Supports Louisiana’s Flood Risk and Resilience Program and Application to the National Disaster Resilience Competition
Mar 1, 2016
RAND helped Louisiana develop an application to the Natural Disaster Resilience Competition, a nearly $1 billion fund for states that have recently experienced a presidentially-declared disaster. Louisiana applied for funds to reduce the flood risk of storm surge by elevating residential structures in three areas. RAND provided a quantitative analysis of the baseline flood risks and different allocations of funds for mitigation across three parishes.
