Following a disaster, ISC’s team of technical specialists will deploy to help assess damage to both public and personal property. Recovery projects can take extensive amounts of time, energy, and funding. There are a variety of funding sources available to communities, private non-profit organizations, businesses, families, and individuals who have been affected by the disaster; however, it may take considerable effort to identify and obtain proper funding sources, coordinate these funding sources, and implement funded projects. At ISC, we help our clients navigate funding programs to expedite the recovery process and help build resiliency.
