Solutions that Transform Communities

The Region’s Leading Disaster Management Resource 


When a major flooding event hit Southeast Louisiana in 1995, GCR’s team of planners reacted with much needed recovery services, marking the beginning of 20 years of disaster management expertise. We have become a leading regional source of professional disaster‐related services, and we are proud of our ongoing professional relationships within Louisiana.


With a keen understanding of FEMA programs administered under the Stafford Act and National Flood Insurance Act, GCR dedicates over sixty full-time professional staff working in Louisiana on grant closeout services. 

Our approach includes reviewing grants for compliance, performing accounting and auditing tasks, providing accounting assurance for federal funds, and assistance to sub-grantees. While we stay focused on meeting project goals and milestones, our management processes are effective in adjusting resources to address evolving needs. 

Disaster Management Solution

GCR’s Disaster Management team offers a full range of services including grant management, hazard mitigation program management, and project delivery. Project leadership and staff are full-time employees who are trained in regulatory requirements and have rich experience in the evaluation and management of federal disaster recovery grants, FEMA Project Assistance (PA), and Hazard Mitigation (HM) closeout.

The Closeout Reporting and Time Entry System, or CRATES, is a time reporting system developed by GCR to track and report on closeout progress at the project level.
