Responsibilities

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, the incumbent will review Federal Grants and serve as an advisor for recovery efforts to maintain Environmental and Historical Preservation (EHP) compliance requirements.

Typical assignments include:

  • Providing environmental and historic preservation compliance technical assistance to teammates and partners;

  • Coordinating with environmental and historic preservation staff at Joint Field Offices (JFOs) and FEMA Regional Offices on a regular basis to ensure front-loading and identification of compliance issues;

  • Ensuring environmental and historic preservation compliance is understood and incorporated as appropriate into grants developed at the Consolidated Resource Center;

  • Determining if grants require and are ready for environmental and historic preservation compliance review; identify additional documentation required to ensure environmental and historic preservation compliance

  • Ensure grants are compliant with environmental and historic preservation laws and executive orders, including but not limited to the National Environmental Act (NEPA), Endangered Species Act (ESA), National Historic Preservation Act, Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, and Executive Orders 11988 (Floodplains), 11990 (Wetlands), and 12898 (Environmental Justice).

  • Educate non-EHP practitioners on environmental and historic preservation compliance laws and best practices.

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.
