FAQ on Independent Living Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response Services

July 19, 2017


ACL has received many questions from the IL network regarding allowable Title VII disaster response and emergency relief efforts for people with disabilities. Please find guidance developed by ACL to assist the network in these efforts. While we always hope that disasters do not happen, ACL strongly encourages the network to be proactive and consider the steps you can take before disaster happens. The chances for disaster may be remote but if the unexpected happens, having a plan in place means one less thing to worry about during a time of crisis.

Please contact Corinna Stiles, Director of the Office of Independent Living, at Corinna.stiles@acl.hhs.gov if you have clarifying questions or concerns about the FAQ. For help implementing any of the suggested steps, please contact your state project officer directly.
