Regional Resiliency Assessment Program
The goal of the Regional Resiliency Assessment Program (RRAP) is to generate understanding and action among public and private sector partners to improve the resilience of a region’s critical infrastructure. Strong partnerships with federal, state, local, and territorial government officials and private sector organizations across multiple disciplines are essential to the RRAP process. This includes private sector facility owners and operators, industry organizations, emergency response and recovery organizations, utility providers, transportation agencies and authorities, planning commissions, law enforcement, academic institutions, and research centers.
Each RRAP project typically involves a year-long process to collect and analyze data on the critical infrastructure within the designated area, followed by continued technical assistance to enhance the infrastructure's resilience. Individual projects can incorporate many different analytic activities and opportunities for valuable information and data exchanges.
The culmination of RRAP activities, research, and analysis is presented in a Resiliency Assessment documenting project results and findings, including key regional resilience gaps and options for addressing these shortfalls. The goals of the RRAP include:
- Resolve infrastructure security and resilience knowledge gaps
- Inform risk management decisions
- Identify opportunities and strategies to enhance infrastructure resilience
- Improve critical partnerships among the public and private sectors
Facility owners and operators, regional organizations, and government agencies can use the results to help guide strategic investments in equipment, planning, training, and infrastructure development to enhance the resilience and security of critical infrastructure, surrounding communities, and entire regions.
