Detalles del Evento
The national engagement process for the Equity Guide has been extended to May 11. Please feel free to continue submitting your comments and feedback.
On April 11, 2023 FEMA will host a virtual consultation with Tribal Nations to solicit feedback and recommendations on the draft Achieving Equitable Recovery: A Post-Disaster Guide for Local Officials (Equity Guide).
The goal of the Equity Guide is to help local officials incorporate diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in their post disaster recovery management work. Successful disaster recovery requires the whole community to rebuild in a thoughtful, equitable, and resilient manner. This guide supports local officials in their efforts to build equity into the recovery process by establishing more diverse partnerships, conducting inclusive strategic public engagement, identifying needs of the whole community, leveraging mitigation opportunities, and developing new partnerships to help leverage funding opportunities.
The Equity Guide helps community leaders identify and address barriers historically found throughout the disaster recovery process by providing advice, checklists, toolkits, case studies, and community examples on how to incorporate equity through the recovery management process and how to work towards achieving equitable outcomes.
This 30-day national engagement provides an opportunity for interested parties to comment on the draft equity guide to ensure that the information is relevant to all implementing partners and stakeholders.
