Provided free of charge as a public service by Adjusters International, Disaster Recovery Today contains knowledge acquired through years of study and field experience. The information contained in its pages has allowed Adjusters International's Disaster Recovery Consulting division to become recognized as specialists in FEMA's public assistance program. We have assisted grantees and applicants with virtually all facets of recovery from planning to close-out, and are pleased to be able to share this expertise.

The key to the success of Disaster Recovery Today is that it is written from a position of advocacy for the applicant. Our team works exclusively on behalf of grantees and applicants, never for FEMA itself. This unique perspective allows us to “tell it like it is” without reservation, and provides you with valuable insights from a non-FEMA perspective.
