The Hurricane Matthew Disaster Recovery and Resilience Initiative (HMDRRI) involves the university engagement of faculty and students as well as professional planning experts in addressing community and state-level needs associated with recovery from Hurricane Matthew. The initiative’s objectives are to:

  1. Serve as point of contact for UNC faculty, students and staff to help the state address a range of policy and technical issues as identified.
