ABSTRACT

National Advisory Council Report to the FEMA Administrator   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Summary: "This report answers the charges that former Administrator Long asked the NAC [National Advisory Council] to review in December 2018. Specifically, the four charges were: 1. How can FEMA structure the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) Grant Program to improve the resilience of critical lifelines? How can FEMA encourage improvements to critical lifeline infrastructure owned by the private sector? 2. What is the best way to close the insurance gap for all-hazards renter policies? 3. What are the barriers to effective code enforcement and how could FEMA support improvements? 4. How can FEMA continue to build financial preparedness? The NAC looked at these four charges through the three existing subcommittees: Response and Recovery, Preparedness and Protection, and Federal Insurance and Mitigation. Each subcommittee presented a number of recommendations to the full NAC, which discussed, debated, and ultimately passed the recommendations in this report."
