Long Term Community Recovery

Within the Kansas Response Plan, Emergency Support Function 14 (ESF 14) provides a framework for state government to support local governments, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and the private sector.  ESF 14 is designed to foster and assist with community recovery from the long-term consequences of a disaster or emergnecy.  This support consists of available programs and resources of federal and state agencies to enable community recovery, especially long-term community recovery, and to reduce or eliminate risk from future incidents, when feasible.

Long-Term Community Recovery after a disaster may last for years in the affected area. As is the case with Long-Term Community Recovery, all disasters begin and end at a local level.  Long-Term Recovery Committees have historically worked in the affected areas for years rebuildong and working to restore the community to a state of normalcy.  Long-Term Community Recovery is primarily managed through Long-Term Recovery Committees at a local level with support provided through other Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster as well as state and federal partners.

Plans should be developed to meet your county/community needs.  Please find information below to assist you in your planning efforts.
