FEMA Efforts Advancing Community-Driven Relocation

On Nov. 30, the Biden-Harris Administration announced the launch of a new Voluntary Community-Driven Relocation program, led by the Department of the Interior, to assist tribal communities severely impacted by climate-related environmental threats. In August 2022, the interagency Community-Driven Relocation Subcommittee was announced and is co-led by FEMA and the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI). This subcommittee convenes federal agencies to explore key considerations, issues and strategies for community partnerships to support voluntary movement away from high-risk regions.

A fact sheet is available that has more information this about community-driven relocation available funding from FEMA grant programs and current projects underway.
