The 2015 National Disaster Resilience Competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) marked a key change in awarding disaster assistance funds. The $1 billion competition actually required applicants to assess the value of nature and other non-traditional benefits in their proposals. As a leader in cutting-edge benefit-cost analysis and a strong advocate for valuing natural capital, Earth Economics played a key role in supporting 40 finalists and over 200 team members with training and feedback on their proposals. In addition, Earth Economics conducted expanded benefit-cost analyses for three of the winning applicants.
