Pre-Disaster Recovery Planning Guide for Tribal Governments   [open pdf - 9MB]

From the Document: "'The Pre-Disaster Recovery Planning Guide for Tribal Governments' provides a basic framework and guidance for tribal leadership and stakeholders as they plan for recovery and recognizes that different tribes have different levels of capacity and different ways of planning. This guidance is applicable to both federally recognized and state recognized tribes and is appropriate preparation for all incidents with or without a Presidential Disaster Declaration. FEMA acknowledges the sovereignty of federally recognized tribes and is committed to helping tribal governments build more resilient communities. [...] Pre-disaster recovery planning helps ensure that if a natural or man-made disaster strikes, tribes will be prepared to address recovery after the incident even if the incident does not rise to the level of a federal declaration. [...] Recovery planning will put tribes in a better place to address pre-existing community needs, take advantage of available resources, think differently about how their resources can be adapted to new purposes, and seize opportunities to rebuild in a resilient way. Effective planning and preparation for potentially harmful events, both large and small, will save both time and money because roles and responsibilities will be clearly identified, and resources will be directed where they are needed most."
