Code for America Hurricane Response

Code for America’s Hurricane Response Activities

To that end, we’re proud to participate with the FEMA National Response Coordination Center’s Crowdsourcing Unit and partner with Red Cross and CEDR Digital Corps to deliver the best information we can get as quickly and effectively as possible to those who need it most.
