Urban Institute Katrina Papers Available

During and after Hurricane Katrina, all income groups and races suffered, but the storm particularly revealed the vulnerability of the poor and the strong racial dimension in the flooded areas. In After Katrina, a new publication series that debuted in January 2006, Urban Institute scholars examine the many policy dimensions of the devastation and propose practical solutions for restoring greater New Orleans.

After Katrina addresses education, housing, health care, employment, arts and culture, the social safety net, and the well-being of children. Other briefs tackle the needs of nonprofit organizations serving the city, the care provided by New Orleans’s hospitals after the storm, flood insurance, the city’s information requirements as it rebuilds, and the most effective ways for government at all levels to respond to disaster.

The papers, along with fact sheets, commentaries, and other presentations, can be found at http://www.urban.org/afterkatrina/.
