Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant (RCPG)
Resource Management: Bridging the Gap
CHHS is leading two projects in the Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant (RCPG) program. Both projects aim to enhance the resource management capabilities of FEMA Region III, which encompasses D.C, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.
Project 5 aims to determine what resources each jurisdiction currently has and where there are resource needs. CHHS will work to address identified resource needs through the establishment of private-public partnerships throughout the region.
Project 6 strives to assess existing resource management systems and to provide plans to enhance these systems into a consistent and interoperable regional network. Technical experts will assess current resource management systems to determine a best-in-class system and to develop templates to standardize resource data collection for key resources.
