This network was established and maintained on behalf of the individuals, families, businesses, and communities in Fort Bend County to facilitate and implement a coordinated response to disaster recovery needs. Fort Bend Recovers focuses on long-term recovery efforts in Fort Bend County following each unique disaster and outlines the Recovery Plan for that specific disaster. Given the resources available, Fort Bend Recovers prioritizes which needs can be addressed with the understanding that long-term recovery could extend into the months and years following a disaster.
