The Recovery Support Function Leadership Group (RSFLG) is made up of multiple departments and agencies across the federal government that work together to help communities recover from a disaster. The RSFLG allows federal agencies to coordinate disaster recovery work under the National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF) across six Recovery Support Functions in order to provide communities with unified federal assistance as quickly and effectively as possible.
As part of the RSFLG, the Program Management Office (PMO) tracks disaster funding and outcomes across the federal interagency partners for major non-COVID disasters since 2017. The purpose of the PMO is to provide accountability and transparency, enhance coordination and collaboration, and facilitate outcome driven recovery across the federal government.
Since September 2017, Congress has passed several non-COVID supplemental disaster appropriations (Public Laws 115-56, 115-72, 115-123, 115-254, 116-20, and 117-43), which together with no-year FEMA Disaster Relief Fund and SBA Disaster Loan funds, are available to help communities recover from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, the 2017 California Wildfires, and other major disasters since 2017. However, data for non-COVID disasters declared in 2020 – 2022 is reported only from FEMA, SBA and HUD.
