Specifically, FEMA seeks this input pursuant to the processes required by Executive Orders 13985, 13990, and 14008 that require agencies to assess existing programs and policies to determine if: (1) Agency programs and policies perpetuate systemic barriers to opportunities and benefits for people of color and other underserved groups; (2) additional agency actions are required to bolster resilience to climate change; and (3) agency programs, policies, and activities address the disproportionately high and adverse climate-related impacts on disadvantaged communities. Consistent with Executive Order 13563 and Executive Order 13707, FEMA further seeks this input to ensure that it is implementing its programs in a manner that builds disaster readiness and closes national capability gaps through data-driven approaches and risk-informed preparedness and mitigation investments as well as in delivering the Agency’s response and recovery mission sets.
