In the days, weeks, and months following a disaster, IEM helps communities by delivering planning, technical assistance, and programmatic support. IEM provides fiscal and programmatic assistance with recovery—exploring all funding opportunities, managing program and financial documentation, and identifying necessary and available resources to support a robust community recovery. Just as importantly, IEM supports public officials, planners, and community members by developing and implementing a long-term recovery strategy to foster a disaster-resilient and economically stable community—one that is prepared for future disasters.

Our technical support helps clients facing complex recovery challenges with a particular focus on building stronger, more disaster-resilient communities as an integral part of disaster recovery. IEM assists on FEMA’s Individual Assistance and Public Assistance for communities made eligible by a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration as well as Hazard Mitigation.
