The Missouri Association of Councils of Government (MACOG) has received a 2021 Aliceann Wohlbruck NADO Impact Award from the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) for the Organizing Your Community for Disaster Recovery Tool-Kit.  The “tool-kit” and associated community workshop guide were developed to help support local jurisdictions in Missouri to properly plan and prepare for potential future disaster events by preparing a Pre-Disaster Long-Term Recovery Plan. “The resources and tools we have put together for our local communities, which their regional planning commission can assist them with, are vital in helping our cities and towns align with Missouri’s State Disaster Recovery Framework.” said Cindy Hultz, MACOG President and Executive Director of the Mark Twain Regional Council of Governments. The “tool-kit” was developed as part of a MACOG statewide long-term disaster recovery planning project funded through an EDA disaster recovery grant and Missouri community development block grant funds.  The Aliceann Wohlbruck NADO Impact Awards are given in recognition of projects that have made significant impacts on their regions and demonstrate the diversity of services and program delivery provided by regional development organizations across the country. The award is named after Aliceann Wohlbruck, a long-time Executive Director and leader with NADO.
