Toolkit Helps in Financial Recovery from Disaster

Family Financial ToolkitWho knew a couple years ago when NDSU Extension became involved with U of MN Extension in a project related to financial recovery after a disaster that we would be recovering from unprecedented flood related disasters this summer of 2011.  And who would have guessed  that my colleague in that project and fellow blogger, Lori Scharmer, Ward County Extension Agent, would be so uniquely qualified to play a key role in her community’s recovery.

The Recovery After Disaster: The Family Financial Toolkit discusses strategies and provides tools that can help you move along the road towards financial recovery. The tools provided in this toolkit are designed to help families make decisions that are best for their family. This toolkit is designed so that those financially impacted by a disaster can utilize the individual units or use the entire toolkit as their situation requires.

There is both a North Dakota http://www.extension.umn.edu/family/tough-times/disaster-recovery/docs/financial-toolkit-ND.pdf and a Minnesota http://www.extension.umn.edu/family/tough-times/disaster-recovery/docs/financial-tookit-all.pdf version of the toolkit.  The main difference is the resource listing at the end of the toolkit, which is state specific.
