Regional Recovery Work Group

The Houston UASI Regional Recovery Workgroup exists to discover, develop, and deliver recovery programs and resources to the Houston-Galveston Area Council Region of southeast Texas.

The workgroup endeavors to fulfil the following goals:

  • Develop regional products, including planning templates, operational tools, and field operating guides
  • Maintain awareness of federal guidance and best practices
  • Bring recovery training courses to the region and develop training where gaps exist
  • Develop and conduct regional exercises
  • Engage with state and federal recovery programs
  • Maintain awareness of funding opportunities

Resources developed by the workgroup can be found at https://houstonuasi.com/recovery-resources.

Members of the workgroup meet frequently at different locations within the five-county UASI footprint; however, there is no standardized meeting date and time. Meetings are open to anyone with a passion for recovery planning and community preparedness.
