This brochure from the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) discusses the role of Emergency Support Function (ESF) #6. From the brochure: "ESF #6 is one of the 15 Federal ESF's from the National Response Framework that provides the structure for coordinating federal interagency support to state, local, tribal and other federal agencies during a federal response to a disaster or event. Led and activated by FEMA, ACF is the lead agency within the Department of Health and Human Services responsible for providing human services support, guidance, coordination, assistance, expertise and deployable assets to FEMA and other governmental and non-governmental partners for human services. An ACF Regional Administrator will usually deploy to the FEMA Joint Field Office or HHS [Department of Health and Human Services] Incident Response Coordination Team in the affected state/region to serve as the HHS Lead Human Services Coordinator or Human Services Operations Branch Director."
