New Resilience Organization Established within FEMA May 28

New Resilience Organization Established within FEMA May 28

Eric Heighberger, FEMA chief of staff, announced that as of May 28, the administrator is establishing a new resilience organization within FEMA, combining the National Preparedness Directorate, Grant Programs Directorate, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, National Continuity Programs and other Protection and National Preparedness Offices.

He said resiliency is the backbone of emergency management and the foundation of the FEMA mission. The resilience organization will consolidate FEMA’s preparedness programs and grants, insurance, mitigation and continuity programs by simplifying processes, breaking down silos, and integrating activities.

Heighberger said this reorganization does not change current authorizations or appropriation allocations. It is a tangible way FEMA will drive change and concentrate its resources toward building a culture of preparedness. This reorganization will enable FEMA and its workforce to focus on what matters most: helping people before, during and after disasters.
