Building a Resilient Nation

FEMA works closely with local and state officials to support their response and recovery efforts.

The Department of Homeland Security provides the coordinated, comprehensive federal response in the event of a terrorist attack, natural disaster or other large-scale emergency while working with federal, state, local, and private sector partners to ensure a swift and effective recovery effort. The Department builds a ready and resilient nation through efforts to:

  • Bolster information sharing and collaboration
  • Provide grants, plans and training to our homeland security and law enforcement partners
  • Facilitate rebuilding and recovery along the Gulf Coast
