Description
 
Given its political and historical significance as home to the most important institutions in the nation, protecting the National Capital Region (NCR; the District of Columbia and local jurisdictions in the State of Maryland and the Commonwealth of Virginia) from both man-made incidents and natural disasters is of particular concern. Regional stakeholders at the local and state levels receive preparedness funding from a variety of federal grant programs, but the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) grant program is the primary source of fed. homeland security funding for the NCR. The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) allocated over $560 million to the NCR from FY 2003 through 2012. However, the region's response to emergencies in 2011 and 2012 raised questions regarding the effectiveness of regional preparedness capabilities. This report reviewed the status of the Fed. Emergency Mngt. Agency (FEMA's) efforts in the NCR to enhance capabilities to prepare for, protect from, and respond to major hazards. This report addresses the extent to which FEMA has assisted regional officials in establishing performance measures and identifying federal funding available to prioritize preparedness investments in the NCR. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
