Long Term Recovery

Some individuals, families, businesses and communities that are especially hard hit by a disaster may need a long time and specialized assistance to recover.
 

Communities  

Although federal, state and other resources may be available it is the recovering communities themselves, through their own recovery groups, committees or taskforces that must lead and manage the effort to ensure that issues are addressed, needs are met and priorities agreed upon.

Recovery Framework 

The National Disaster Recovery Framework is a FEMA-produced guide that outlines recovery support to disaster-impacted states, tribes, and local jurisdictions. It provides a flexible structure that enables disaster recovery managers to operate in a unified and collaborative manner. It also focuses on how best to restore, redevelop and revitalize the health, social, economic, natural and environmental fabric of the community and build a more resilient nation.
