National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF). The NDRF is intended to 
work in concert with the National Response Framework (NRF) to provide

recovery. Recognizing the continuum between preparedness, response, 
recovery, and mitigation, the NDRF transitions with and continues 
beyond the scope of the National Response Framework.

DATES: This NDRF is effective September 23, 2011.

ADDRESSES: This final NDRF is available online at https://www.regulations.gov and on FEMA's Web site at https://www.fema.gov. The

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION The NDRF addresses the short, intermediate, 
and long-term challenges of managing disaster recovery. Like the NRF, 
the NDRF is intended to address all hazards events, whether natural or 
manmade, and provide constructs that are scalable, adaptable, and 
responsive to the changing needs of different disasters. In recognizing 
the continuum between preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation, 
the NDRF is intended to overlap and continue beyond the scope of the 
NRF.
    The NDRF provides recovery concepts and principles important to all 
disaster recovery stakeholders. It provides guidance to stakeholders 
for engaging in pre-disaster recovery planning and other recovery 
preparedness and resiliency building efforts; clarifies roles for 
local, State, Tribal and Federal governments, private non-profit and 
private sector organizations; provides guidance for facilitating post-
disaster recovery planning to expedite long-term disaster recovery; and 
provides assistance to stakeholders in identifying recovery needs 
beyond replacement or return to pre-disaster condition. The document 
also provides guidance that impacted communities may use to develop 
recovery priorities, and measure recovery progress and outcomes against 
their agreed-upon objectives. It also provides guidance for both 
government and non-governmental organizations providing recovery 
assistance to track progress, ensure accountability, and make 
adjustments to ongoing assistance. The NDRF lays out a systematic 
approach to disaster recovery, applicable to all levels of government 
and sectors of communities with recovery responsibilities.
    On February 10, 2010, the Long Term Disaster Recovery Working Group 
published a draft of the NDRF in the Federal Register on February 10, 
2010 (75 FR6681). In response to this posting, we received 139 
comments. These comments helped to clarify and strengthen key NDRF 
concepts including the role of private sector and nongovernmental 
organizations in recovery, coordination with State and local recovery 
partners, and the central role leadership plays in successful recovery 
efforts.
    The NDRF does not have the force or effect of law.
