Description: The purpose of the RCPGP is to build state and local capacity to manage catastrophic incidents by improving and expanding regional collaboration for catastrophic incident preparedness. The National Response Framework (3rd edition, 2016) (or superseding edition) defines a catastrophic incident as any natural or manmade incident, including terrorism, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the population, infrastructure, environment, economy, national morale, or government functions. The regional interdependencies of effective Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery activities require a cohesive regional approach to catastrophic planning. The objective of RCPGP is to close known capability gaps, encourage innovative regional solutions to issues related to catastrophic incidents, and build on existing regional efforts. Applicants' RCPGP projects should increase capability levels in the Food, Water, and Sheltering Community Lifeline as measured in the Housing or Logistics and Supply Chain Management core capabilities reported through the Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA)/Stakeholder Preparedness Review (SPR). Through regional collaboration, the RCPGP supports the development and delivery of projects that address Community Lifelines, which are critical to manage catastrophic incidents. Stabilizing and restoring lifelines in catastrophes requires solutions that go beyond scaling up existing plans and capabilities to maximize the creative power of cross-sector coordination while respecting the roles of private sector partners and agency authorities at all levels of government. To this end, RCPGP applicants are encouraged to develop projects that build a continuous cycle of planning, organizing, training, and exercising with regional partners across the whole community to improve their collective readiness posture. This program is intended to be regional in nature and benefit multiple States.
