Ask anyone involved in emergency management, and they will tell you that private-public partnerships, or P3s, are essential to disaster restoration and recovery. In fact, FEMA believes P3s help mitigate stressors on individuals and communities by strengthening social networks and connections, improving social cohesion, and fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion. For these reasons and others, the agency routinely develops (and updates) information on the topic of P3s, including the guide “Building Private-Public Partnerships” (July 2021) and now the draft version of “Restoration and Recovery Guide for Private-Public Partnerships.”  

FEMA is seeking feedback on the latter and will continue to do so through October 12, 2022. It is available for download
