The Resilience Planning Program works with federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government officials and infrastructure owners and operators to plan, design, and implement solutions that enhance the security and resilience of critical infrastructure against a variety of threats.
The Resilience Planning Program offers an interdisciplinary and partnership-based approach that incorporates resilience strategies and policies into all phases of critical infrastructure planning, design, construction, and maintenance. This holistic approach helps public and private owners and operators, and state, local, tribal, and territorial planners and policy makers effectively prioritize and integrate resilience measures into policies, plans, designs, and operational procedures.
Infrastructure Resilience Planning Framework (IRPF)
The Infrastructure Resilience Planning Framework (IRPF) is comprehensive, step-by-step planning guidance to inform long-term planning and investment decisions. The IRPF encourages partnering with local governments, planners, and the private sector to enhance the understanding of and planning for infrastructure resilience.
