In this episode we talk with @DavidMazzuca about post disaster housing policy. He speaks about the post Hurricane Sandy housing recovery in New Jersey, and also shares lessons from across the country. We also discuss what states can do to be more prepared for the recovery process, and how changing the way we look at national funding may be necessary in the face of increasing disasters.
