The purpose of the Natural and Cultural Resources (NCR) Recovery Support Function (RSF) Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is to provide operational guidance to the NCR RSF Field Coordinator and personnel that staff or support the implementation of the NCR RSF of the NDRF. This document is consistent and aligned with the NDRF’s Recovery Federal Interagency Operational Plan, which provides a holistic operational view of the NDRF’s RSFs in the field and their intersections and coordination with other field-level organizations. The SOP identifies the departments, agencies, and organizations that comprise the NCR RSF, the potential recovery assistance that each may provide, and how each will coordinate support for the recovery planning and operations of Local, State, Tribal, Territorial, or Insular Area governments to address unmet NCR disaster recovery needs. These efforts typically culminate in the preparation of the NCR RSF sections of two of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s key recovery reports; namely, the Mission Scoping Assessment Report and the Recovery Support Strategy Report. Both reports are written are prepared in partnership with other RSFs.
