Supporting Organizations

Supporting Organizations have specific capabilities or resources that support the Primary Agencies in executing the mission of the Natural and Cultural Resources (NCR) Recovery Support Function (RSF). The NCR RSF Supporting Organizations have 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, and 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.  

 There are currently 15 Supporting Organizations for the NCR RSF. Responsibilities and support provided by Supporting Organizations are defined and accomplished under a Federal Emergency Management Agency-issued Mission Assignment, Reimbursable Services Agreement, Interagency Agreement, or other funding mechanism subject to resource availability. The Coordinating Agency may also coordinate recovery planning with stakeholders in the disaster-affected community. These include, but are not limited to: faith- and community-based organizations, nonprofit entities, and members of the private sector.
