"This report describes selected FEMA NEHRP [National Earthquake Hazards Reductions Program] accomplishments (HQ and Regional), followed by highlights from the States and U.S. territories and organizations which received FEMA support for NEHRP activities. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2013, FEMA awarded more than $ 1.2 million to eligible States and territories to support the effective implementation of earthquake risk reduction activities. Organizations receiving FEMA support included the four regional earthquake consortia - Cascadia Region Earthquake Workgroup (CREW), Central United States Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC), Northeast States Emergency Consortium (NESEC), and the Western States Seismic Policy Council (WSSPC) - the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, Inc. (FLASH), and the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC). The accomplishments described in this report showcase how FEMA and its partners, working in collaboration, continued to make progress toward earthquake loss-reduction nationwide. Much of the work completed in FY 2013 is helping to reduce the earthquake risk, and is now serving as the foundation for realizing effective long-term outcomes."
