Learn How FEMA Works
FEMA's mission is to help people before, during and after disasters. Here's what you can expect from FEMA in each stage.
About Our Process
FEMA’s Resilient Nation Partnership Network (RNPN) eighth forum will host in partnership with the Sundance Institute. The theme for this year is “Stories of Resilience: Voices That Inspire.” The Forum will feature robust panel discussions on resilience challenges and how we can act together to address them by using storytelling to advance natural hazard resilience. Sessions will take place online Thursdays in April from 1-3 p.m.
A deadline is approaching for communities and Tribal Nations to receive free FEMA help with hazard mitigation planning and potential Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) project support. Communities and Tribal Nations that lack resources to begin climate resilience planning and designing projects have until Thursday, Feb. 29, 2024, to submit forms to request BRIC Direct Technical Assistance.
FEMA announced that federal disaster assistance has been made available to the state of North Dakota to supplement recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe winter storms and straight-line winds Dec. 25-27, 2023.
