In response to the needs that will arise following Hurricane Florence and other storms that may hit throughout the Atlantic hurricane season, such as Isaac, Helene and Gordon, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy's 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season Recovery Fund will focus on medium- and long-term recovery needs, including rebuilding homes and businesses; meeting the needs of young children; and supporting mental health (among other needs). Specific locations and funding gaps to address unmet needs will be determined by a grant committee that will be established to guide CDP’s staff and board.
