In April 2011, many Alabama communties were impacted by severe storms that produced multiple tornadoes. To help these communities recover, Gov. Robert Bentley signed Executive Order No. 18
on June 13 which named the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs to be the coordinating agency under the direction of the Governor's Office for long term recovery efforts.
Six areas of community recovery were identified, and task forces were established to address the needs. The task forces are partnerships between public, private and nonprofit sectors that provide resources, services and personnel to help with each need.
The six areas include: Housing, Economic Recovery, Infrastructure, Health and Social Services, Community Planning and Capacity Building and Natural and Cultural Resources.
