What If You Could Conduct Your Own Assessment of Community Functioning and Resilience?
The COPEWELL self-assessment rubric tools and implementation guides have been designed to give communities an opportunity to engage in the process of bringing together diverse expertise across community sectors to discuss, assess, strategize, plan, and improve and enhance community resilience to disasters.

Each of the five self-assessment rubric tools below map directly to the COPEWELL model elements of Pre-Event Functioning (Community Functioning), Resistance (Prevention/Mitigation and Population Vulnerability, Inequality and Deprivation (PVID)), and Recovery (Social Capital and Cohesion and Emergency Management). Used individually, the rubrics will help communities focus their attention on specific areas of need or concern. Used together, the rubrics will help paint a holistic picture of community resilience and inspire communities to take action to enhance resilience to disasters.
