Restoring the Missouri River Basin (MRB)
FEMA Region VII Administrator Beth Freeman is participating on the Missouri River Flood Task Force which is addressing both immediate and long-term floodplain management challenges for the MRB.

Members of the MRFTF include federal agencies with authorities and responsibilities in the MRB, tribal members designated by their tribal chairman to participate, and state government-designated leads. Non-governmental organizations, associations, media, and the public are also being engaged.
Communities affected by a disaster often need help to recover from the loss of crucial facilities and infrastructure. Matching community needs to prospective resources—both technical assistance and funding opportunities—is critical to successful recovery.
Long-Term Community Recovery (LTCR), a FEMA program, has created resource guides to support community recovery for all four FEMA Region VII states. The guides facilitate matching recovery needs with prospective resources and help city officials, recovery stakeholders and community members connect with potential partners and agencies to strengthen development and planning efforts related to a community’s long-term recovery. The Resource Guides provide basic information about local, state and federal government and nonprofit organizations with technical assistance and grant programs applicable to recovery. General descriptions of resources, Web sites, programming objectives, eligible applicants and contact information may change over time.
