DHS/FEMA RIN: 1660-AB08 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: ●Request for Information on FEMA Programs, Regulations, and Policies 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is issuing this Request for Information (RFI) to receive input from the public on specific FEMA programs, regulations, and policies for the agency to consider modifying, streamlining, expanding, or repealing in light of recent Executive Orders. These efforts aim to help FEMA ensure that its programs, regulations, and policies contain necessary, properly tailored, and up-to-date requirements that effectively achieve FEMA’s mission in a manner that furthers the goals of advancing equity for all, including those in underserved communities, bolstering resilience from the impacts of climate change, particularly for those disproportionately impacted by climate change, and environmental justice.  

FEMA seeks this input pursuant to the processes required specifically by Executive Orders 13985, 13990, and 14008 that require agencies to assess existing programs and policies to determine if: (1) Agency programs and policies perpetuate systemic barriers to opportunities and benefits for people of color and other underserved groups; (2) additional agency actions are required to bolster resilience to climate change; and (3) agency programs, policies, and activities address the disproportionately high and adverse climate-related impacts on disadvantaged communities. FEMA further seeks this input to ensure that it is implementing its programs in a manner that builds disaster readiness and closes national capability gaps through data-driven approaches and risk-informed preparedness and mitigation investments as well as in delivering the Agency’s response and recovery mission sets.
