The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development this week launched the $1-billion National Disaster Resilience Competition for Community Development Block Grant disaster recovery funds. The contestants are the 67 communities nationwide that "experienced a Presidentially Declared Major Disaster" from 2011 through 2013.

"Why do I read Site Selection?"
Your magazine has been helpful to me. I look to the regional reports. This is work I don't do all the time. To get in the groove, and see what those who do it all the time are doing, it helps to get your head in the game.
