Disaster Preparedness

Philanthropic Preparedness, Resiliency & Emergency Partnership (PPREP) is a learning cohort of community foundations in a ten-state Midwestern region. The purpose of this grant-funded initiative is to build understanding, skill, and capacity in response to disaster while insuring our communities become more resilient. PPREP focuses on community foundations because they work regularly with partners in the private, nonprofit and public sectors, effectively organizing their regions and coordinating services to those requiring assistance.

This initiative strengthens our role in the community and how we will respond should Lincoln/Lancaster County face a disaster.

This program provides a means to initiate conversations, learn about community resources, and identify where funding needs may be greatest. The Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities administers this five-year initiative launched in 2014.
