Earthquake Risk

The National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) leads the federal government’s efforts to reduce the fatalities, injuries and property losses caused by earthquakes. Congress established NEHRP in 1977, directing that four federal agencies coordinate their complementary activities to implement and maintain the program. These agencies are:

  • Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
  • National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
  • National Science Foundation (NSF)
  • U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)

NEHRP also partners with state and local governments, universities, research centers, professional societies and trade associations and businesses.
