This is the March 11, 2020 hearing on "FEMA's Priorities for 2020 and Beyond: Coordinating Mission and Vision," held before the House Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, and Emergency Management of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. From the opening statement of Dina Titus: "Today we are going to examine the priorities of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and its vision for addressing the challenges the agency faces in meeting its strategic priorities. [...] It should go without saying that the Government must address the needs of all Americans in disaster recovery. However, some of our most vulnerable populations are being neglected or shamefully overlooked by existing FEMA programs. Committee staff have met with advocates from the disability and low-income communities regarding their frustration with FEMA's attention, or lack thereof, to their needs in times of recovery. After years of progress on this front in response to the failures we saw in Hurricane Katrina, these communities fear that we are backsliding. We will discuss these issues, too, I am sure, further on in today's hearing." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Peter T. Gaynor.
