Low- and moderate- income (LMI) households and communities suffer disproportionately from disasters, but there are a few policies or programs to help them achieve post-disaster financial resilience. This presentation will discuss a variety of policy options for local governments to improve the financial resiliency of LMI residents through inclusive insurance models. Some of these would need to be adopted in partnership with the private sector, others are fully public sector approaches. The focus is on homeowners, but some of the discussed policies would equally assist renters.
