FEMA Seeks Feedback on the Draft National Resilience Guidance

National Resilience Guidance: A Collaborative Approach to Building Resilience April 2024 - National Engagement Draft

We are seeking feedback on the draft National Resilience Guidance from whole community stakeholders. The guidance emphasizes that strengthening resilience requires a collective approach.

Date: May 7, 2024 - May 15, 2024

Time: 5:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Location: Virtual

Event Details

We will host a series of 60-minute webinar sessions to provide an overview of the draft National Resilience Guidance and gather feedback from whole community partners. This national engagement period provides the opportunity for the public to review the draft guidance and provide comment for FEMA’s consideration prior to finalizing the guide.

With the goal of increasing community and national resilience, the guidance:

  • Promotes a common understanding of resilience.
  • Emphasizes the critical relationship between chronic community stressors and shocks.
  • Addresses the roles of all stakeholders.
  • Provides an actionable approach to resilience planning and implementation.
  • Incorporates a community resilience maturity model that walks through concrete steps to build resilience.

The sessions will include facilitated discussions with stakeholders to help improve the existing draft. FEMA seeks input – especially real-world case studies – that can be incorporated into the guidance.
