The Brooklyn Long Term Recovery Group produces reports about unmet needs and meets those need through our Construction Volunteer Donations Committee CVD.
Canarsie 2 Years Needs Assessment
Every two week disaster case managers (DCM) meet to prepare cases to ensure they're suitable and qualify to be accepted by voluntary rebuild organizations that meet at the Construction Volunteer Donations (CVD) meeting. The DCM does a home visit, confirms the client's AMI (area media income), reviews their CAN profile and documents their need. At the CVD meeting, the voluntary rebuild organizations assess the cases and determine which organization can best meet the needs of the client.
