NDRC

National Disaster Resilience Competition 

A series of three storm systems in April 2011 caused significant damage in Shelby County. Due to the severity of the damages, Shelby County was identified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as Tennessee’s most impacted area. These three events resulted in Presidentially Disaster Declarations and serve as the basis for the County’s eligibility to participate in the National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC). The NDRC is a national competition for $1 billion for activities that advance resilience efforts in states, territories, and local jurisdictions.

The breadth of the impact across Shelby County from the April 2011 storms impact emphasizes the need for a thoughtful and comprehensive long-term recovery process. The County is in the process of assessing remaining recovery needs in the fields of housing, infrastructure, economic revitalization, and the natural environment and analyzing the risks and vulnerabilities that face Shelby County as well as how they will change over time due to the effects of climate change and other factors. Building upon the significant efforts that have taken place since the disaster – most notably the Mid-South Regional Greenprint and Sustainability Plan – Shelby County has developed a plan for how to address remaining unmet needs and account for evolving risks while creating a more resilient County, better prepared to respond to and recover from future disasters.
