The National Recovery Framework is the vehicle through which the Federal Government supports States, Tribes, Territories, and Local Governments in times of presidentially declared disasters. When a State, Tribal, or Territorial Government finds that their resources are overwhelmed when responding to an emergency, they can turn to the Federal Government and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for aid.
