National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program

National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program


NEHRP seeks to mitigate earthquake losses in the United States through basic and directed research and implementation activities in the fields of earthquake science and engineering. The NEHRP program supports the mission area of the DHS Quadrennial Homeland Security Review titled “Strengthen National Preparedness and Resilience,” and supports the mitigation mission area in the National Preparedness System and National Preparedness Goal. NEHRP also supports the FEMA 2018-2022 Strategic Plan, by contributing to the accomplishment of Strategic Goal 1: Build a Culture of Preparedness and Strategic Goal 2: Ready the Nation for Catastrophic Disasters.

Participation in the FEMA NEHRP State Assistance program is limited to those States and Territories that have been determined to be at a moderate to very high risk of earthquakes.
