Today’s discussion Define ‘disaster recovery’ Provide a high level overview of disaster recovery process Describe the various roles & responsibilities in the recovery process Describe FEMA/federal disaster assistance programs: Public Assistance (PA) Individual Assistance (IA) Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster loans Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) & non-disaster HM Grants Provide some context from recent/previous disasters Acknowledge challenges in recovery and discuss planning 2

Where does ‘Recovery’ fit within the other phases of emergency management? ‘Recovery’ process emerges after initial ‘response’ to a disaster and transitions into initial short-term recovery efforts. The transition from shortterm to long-term recovery is often difficult and uncertain. Recovery involves more than just physical reconstruction Social Recovery Economic Recovery Environmental Recovery 3

How do we define the “Disaster Recovery” process? “ a sequence of interdependent and often concurrent activities that progressively advance a community toward a successful recovery” (FEMA, NDRF 2011) “The differential process of restoring, rebuilding and reshaping the physical, social, economic and natural environment through pre-event planning and post-event actions” (Smith and Wenger 2006) “The process of returning an organization, society, or system to a state of normality after the occurrence of a disastrous event” (Dictionary.com) 4

FEMA’s National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) Published September 2011. Describes concepts and principles to promote effective federal recovery assistance. Scalable, flexible coordinating structure for Federal, State, local, private sector, NGO’s and community organizations with role in disaster recovery. Core Principles: Individual & family empowerment Leadership & local primacy Pre-disaster recovery planning Partnerships & inclusiveness Timeliness & flexibility Public Information & unity of effort Resilience & sustainability Psychological & emotional recovery 5

Recovery Roles & Responsibilities Local Government Primary role to plan & manage community recovery – work with State & Federal governments who support; engage residents in recovery process COOP & COG Planning pre-disaster Most mitigation/resilience measures adopted & implemented at local level State Government Help manage & coordinate recovery process w/ all stakeholders Conduit for federal recovery assistance & other State programs/assistance Keep public informed & coordinate messaging w/ all stakeholders Federal Government Supporting role when disaster exceeds local/State capacity to recover Help coordinate & leverage all federal resources (financial, technical support, planning & training) 6

Recovery Roles & Responsibilities (continued) Individuals & households Need to plan & prepare themselves for recovery – adequate insurance, supplies, etc. Maintain awareness of public info on recovery process to help eliminate confusion & uncertainty Private sector, business community & critical infrastructure Help establish public confidence post-disaster – an operational private sector helps community recover more quickly (jobs, tax base, etc.) Non-profits Voluntary, faith-based & community organizations, charities – help fill the gaps where government authority & resources don’t apply 7

Disaster Recovery Continuum DISASTER! Source: FEMA Nat’l Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF), Sept. 2011 (Figure 1) 8

Phases of Recovery (from NDRF continuum) Pre-disaster (Preparedness) Recovery & mitigation planning, training & exercises, partnership building, public health & health care planning Short-term Recovery (Days) Mass Care/sheltering, debris clearance, emergency public health & health care, business recovery, emotional/psychological healthcare Intermediate Recovery (Weeks - Months) Interim housing, debris removal & infrastructure repairs, business recovery, continuity of public health & health care, ID mitigation actions (build better/stronger) Long-term (Months - Years) Permanent housing, rebuild infrastructure, economic revitalization & rebuilding, reestablish disrupted health care facilities, implement mitigation actions 9

How is disaster recovery assistance provided disaster recovery programs Local communities are responsible for the protection of residents & local emergency responders are the first line of defense when disaster strikes Disasters will continue occur – some will be beyond the capabilities of local & State governments to respond to, and recover from – requiring the assistance of the Federal government Federal disaster assistance is generally provided thru FEMA and coordinated under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief & Emergency Assistance Act (as amended). 10

Federal Disaster Assistance the FEMA PA program Public Assistance (PA) Program – supplemental aid (grants) to states, communities, certain PNP’s for costs associated with response and recovery from declared disasters. May include assistance for debris removal, emergency protective measures & permanent restoration of publicly-owned infrastructure damaged by event. Federal share typically 75% of eligible costs – reimbursement based program (incur costs locally – seek 75% reimbursement). Administered thru coordinated efforts of FEMA, the State (grantee), and the applicants (sub-grantees) FEMA determines eligibility of: applicants, facilities, work & costs. Large project/small project thresholds – treated differently by regulation/policy. 12

Federal Disaster Assistance the FEMA IA Program Individual Assistance (IA) Program – FEMA financial or direct assistance to individuals & families whose property has been damaged or destroyed as result of a federally declared disaster, and may not be covered by insurance. Regional Disaster Recovery Centers (DRC’s) may be opened to facilitate registration process and answer eligibility questions. Meant to help with critical expenses not covered in other ways. Not intended to return property to pre-disaster condition. Assistance funds may be available for: – Temporary housing, repairs/replacement to primary residence not covered by insurance. – Most assistance provided in the form of low interest loans provided by the Small Business Administration (SBA). Other than housing, other disaster-related expenses related to the following may be eligible: – medical/dental, clothing, household items, funeral expenses, damage to vehicle 13

Federal Disaster Assistance SBA Assistance Small Business Administration (SBA) – may provide low interest loans to businesses & individuals to repair or replace real estate, personal property, machinery & equipment, inventory and business assets that have been damaged or destroyed in a declared disaster. Home & Property Disaster Loans: low-interest loans may be available to homeowners & renters who qualify to repair/replace clothing, furniture, appliances destroyed by declared disaster (up to 40k). Up to 200k to repair/replace primary residence to pre-disaster condition. Disaster Assistance Loans: low interest disaster loans to homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes and private, nonprofit organizations to repair or replace real estate, personal property, machinery & equipment, inventory and business assets that have been damaged or destroyed in a declared disaster. Economic Injury Loans: small business or private, nonprofit organization has suffered economic injury, regardless of physical damage, and is located in a declared disaster area. Farm Emergency Loans: emergency loans to help producers recover from physical losses due to drought, flooding, other natural disasters. 14

Federal Disaster Assistance FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP): Authorized by Section 404 of Stafford Act – post-disaster opportunity to reduce future damages and build better, stronger, smarter; reduce the need for other phases of EM and reduce reliance on future disaster assistance. HMGP 15% of FEMA PA & IA disaster spending. Available Statewide – not just in ‘federally declared counties’ for ‘allhazard’ mitigation projects (flood, wind, seismic, etc.) and mitigation planning. Provides funds for hazard mitigation plans & projects after a disaster (not an annual allocation). Typically 75% FEMA, 25% non-federal (local) match. Co-administered by State Hazard Mitigation Team (MEMA and DCR Flood Hazard Management Program staff). Public Assistance Individual Assistance (PA) (IA) 15% HMGP Available 15

Recent disaster declarations Eleven open/active disasters and emergency declarations. Since 2011 Four (4) Major Disaster Declarations DR-1959 (Jan. ‘11 Snow) ( 34M in damages) DR-1994 (June ‘11 Tornadoes) ( 33M in damages) DR-4028 (Hurricane Irene) ( 40M in damages) DR-4051 (Oct. ‘11 Snow) ( 94M in damages) Two (2) Emergency Declarations EM-3330 (Pre-landfall Hurricane Irene) ( 7.2M ) EM-3350 (Pre-landfall Hurricane Sandy) (TBD) Five (5) SBA Disaster Declarations Major Fires in Fitchburg, Brookline & Marlborough Localized flooding in Beverly & Fall River Hurricane Sandy stay tuned? 16

Acknowledge challenges in the recovery process Disaster Recovery is not easy Issues will be challenging, complex & unfamiliar; there is never enough time/money. Disaster recovery may take years Emergency actions - restore community services - long-term rebuilding. Your community is not immune to future disasters If it happened once, it can happen again; incorporate mitigation and ‘lessons learned’ from others into recovery plans/policies/procedures. Recovery programs & policies seem like “moving targets” Assistance policies are frequently changed/amended; overlapping programs or program gaps of agencies. There are many possible outcomes to disaster recovery Local leadership & vision critical to successes; return to pre-disaster conditions may not be achievable (or sustainable); pre-disaster recovery planning allows time for community dialogue & vision. 17

Recovery Planning Process & Plan Elements Importance of recovery planning process: Public participation Policy dialogue Facilitation Negotiated rule-making Topic/elements to consider in plan: Damage and needs assessments Post-disaster permitting Building moratorium Debris management Restoration of public services Repair of infrastructure Critical facilities Housing (emergency shelter, temporary, permanent) Public health, social services Business and economic recovery Hazard mitigation actions/opportunities 18

Reluctance to plan for disaster recovery may result in Negative outcomes: Poor coordination among stakeholders (both internal to the community, as well as State, Federal, voluntary agencies, PNP’s and business community). Increased length of time to fully recover. Increased dependence on federal assistance following disasters. Missed opportunities to incorporate hazard mitigation into recovery. Reduced understanding of actual/real local needs. Lower levels of public involvement & participation in recovery activities. 19

What is MEMA doing related to disaster recovery planning & programs? Review and major revisions to the Disaster Recovery Annex to State’s Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) Developing ‘Recovery’ Emergency Support Function (ESF) for State Emergency Operation Center Comprehensive review and update to Commonwealth’s Standard State Hazard Mitigation Plan Future training & exercises involving disaster recovery programs. 20
