Responding When Disaster Strikes


Texas. New Jersey. New York. Louisiana. Hurricanes Rita and Katrina. Superstorm Sandy. Hurricane Ike. 9/11. The Northridge earthquake. While no two disasters are alike, what these situations all had in common was ICF. We’ve worked with federal, state and local government agencies for nearly every major natural disaster in recent U.S. history, designing programs, setting up projects, and developing policies to help pull communities back together after seemingly insurmountable challenges.
