Commitment to Action

Improving Disaster Resilience & Recovery in the US

Commitment by

Toyota Motor North America, Inc., SBP

In 2015, Toyota and St. Bernard Project (SBP) committed to improve the way America prepares for, and responds, to the increasing number of costly natural disasters. Through a three-year, five million dollar investment by Toyota, SBP will expand the scope of its Disaster Resilience and Recovery Lab, founded in 2013, and Toyota will support the training of 140 AmeriCorps members each year in the Toyota Production System philosophy. In addition, the Corporation for Community and National Service (CNCS), which administers AmeriCorps, will partner to support SBP’s post-disaster rebuilding training that will be available, at no cost, to grantees, including AmeriCorps programs, engaged in disaster recovery work. As a result, over three years, 30 communities, including small and mid-sized businesses and homeowners, will be trained to understand and mitigate risk, and 420 AmeriCorps members will receive training from Toyota.
