SUMMARY

This research project identifies how to improve the measurement of outcomes for marginalized communities and help guide investments in those outcomes when developing disaster recovery plans and programs. We apply an exploratory sequential mixed methods design that uses qualitative and quantitative methods to identify indicators that measure and track the well-being and recovery of marginalized populations, such as the distribution of disaster recovery funds.
