Impact of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on People with Disabilities: A Look Back and Remaining Challenges [open pdf - 106KB]
This National Council on Disability (NCD) report focuses on the effects of the hurricanes on people with all types of disabilities. The challenges faced by people with disabilities during and after the Hurricanes, while unique in scope and proportion, were similar to the challenges people with disabilities face on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, many of the findings and recommendations related to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita echo NCD's previous research on improving the daily quality of life of people with disabilities.
