Comments

The Corporation has implemented this data collection system to organize and manage information related to disaster recovery program activities as they occur in the field. All Corporation-supported programs that assist with disaster response/recovery are asked to report up-to-date information. The role of the database is to gather and subsequently disseminate disaster recovery program activities from all CNCS programs as soon as the activities occur. Due to recent major hurricane activity in the southern United States, it is essential that the Corporation has this disaster recovery collection instrument in place as soon as possible. Therefore, the Corporation has requested OMB's emergency review and approval by October 31, 2005
