    When disaster strikes, America looks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce. Please visit www.fema.gov for additional information.

    EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.

    In this position, you will manage the Environmental and Historic Planning (EHP) compliance component of the disaster recovery operation and represent FEMA's interest with Federal, Tribal, and State EHP resource agencies and organizations.

    Typical assignments include:

    • Implementing applicable federal environmental/historic laws, including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Endangered Species Act, Clean Water Act, the National Historic Preservation Act, Archeological Resources Preservation Act, Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act and Executive Orders (EO) 11988, 11990, and 12898, as they pertain FEMA's disaster programs, including Public Assistance, Individual Assistance, and Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs, as well as National Disaster Recovery Framework.
    • Reviews, analyzes, and recommends modifications of projects, plans, and/or programs developed by tribal, State, and local governments and subgrantees to implement various provisions required for environmental/historic preservation compliance requirements.
    • Analyzes draft and final environmental/historic preservation review documents and works with program and regional staff to refine documentation.
    • Develops legally binding and defensible compliance actions, negotiates, streamlined review procedures, consultation documentation and agreements.
    • Identifies the specific need for EHP expertise in the disaster recovery operation, acquires the appropriate resources either within FEMA, through technical assistance contracts, or other means, and manages and supervises those resources for performance.

    Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.

    Travel Required

    Occasional travel - Occasional non-emergency travel may be required.
