Natural and Cultural Resources Recovery Support Function (NCR RSF) Overview

The Natural and Cultural Resources Recovery Support Function (NCR RSF) integrates Federal assets and capabilities to help state and tribal governments and communities address long-term environmental and cultural resource recovery needs after large-scale and catastrophic incidents. 

The NCR RSF preserves, conserves, rehabilitates, and restores natural, cultural and historic resources consistent with post-disaster community priorities and in compliance with prevailing environmental and cultural resources laws. The RSF coordinates Federal departments and agencies working together to provide information and assistance to communities seeking to restore natural and cultural resources impacted by natural or man-made disasters.

Relevant agencies and partners are those with expertise and programs including, but not limited to, specific natural and cultural resource issue identification, assessment and management (e.g., fish and wildlife, historic and traditional cultural properties, hydrology); resource planning; environmental planning and historic preservation compliance under Federal laws and Executive Orders (specific to programs that provide funding for disaster recovery); and community sustainability.  More information about NCR RSF's primary agencies and supporting organizations can be found here.
