Disaster Response, Recovery & Mitigation


Providing the Support You Need When Your Community Needs You
the Most

LAN understands the urgency and criticality of providing post-disaster support to public agencies and the communities they serve. Our long-standing history of service includes post-disaster support for every major storm event in Texas in the past 80 years. Today, we continue to support communities in South Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

From performing damage assessments to working with federal funding agencies such as FEMA, HUD, and the U.S. Corps of Engineers, LAN provides expertise to support and guide our clients through the entire post-disaster process. LAN provides immediate post-disaster assessments, long-term remediation design, natural hazard mitigation strategy development, program management, and planning services. Additionally, we assist our clients with identifying project funding opportunities, prioritizing projects for the pursuit of grant funding, grant application writing, and grant management and administration services.
