Notice of this meeting is required under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), Public Law 92-463, as amended (5 U.S.C. App. 1 et seq.).

The Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency (DHS/FEMA) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) have recently begun work on an initiative to Strengthen Disaster Recovery for the Nation. At the President's request, the Secretaries of Homeland Security and Housing and Urban Development are co-chairing a Long Term Recovery Working Group composed of the Secretaries and Administrators of more than 20 departments, agencies, and offices. This high-level, strategic initiative will provide operational guidance for recovery organizations as well as make suggestions for future improvement. An intensive stakeholder outreach began in November 2009, involving State, local, and Tribal government representatives, as well as a wide array of private organizations and private non-profit organizations, to inform these efforts. As a continuation of the stakeholder engagement effort, FEMA will be conducting a public teleconference with the National Advisory Council to brief them on the discussions that took place with stakeholders in November and to obtain the council's input on disaster recovery management issues and opportunities.

The meeting is open to the public. Although members of the public will not be allowed to comment orally during the meeting, they may file a written statement with the NAC before the date of the meeting. For those wishing to submit written comments, please follow the procedure noted above.
