"This is the annual report of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) for fiscal year (FY) 2013, presented by the NEHRP Interagency Coordinating Committee (ICC). This report, required by Public Law 108-360, describes the FY 2013 activities of the NEHRP agencies, and their progress toward reducing the impacts of future earthquakes in the United States. The report also lists actual program budgets for FY 2014 and budgets for FY 2015 proposed by the Administration. The four Federal agencies participating in NEHRP are the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). NIST serves as the NEHRP lead agency and the Director of NIST chairs the ICC. Within NEHRP, the participating agencies have distinct roles and responsibilities that are mutually dependent and supportive."
