The Disaster Recovery Positions Library (DRPL) is a catalog of position descriptions related to long-term disaster recovery. Following a disaster, a local government may need to fill many of the positions listed in the library. The position descriptions within the DRPL represent the minimum criteria for a particular capability and offer a consistent framework for identifying and inventorying recovery-related human resources.
The DRPL focuses on 10 local recovery activities (listed below) and their associated positions at three organizational levels: management, coordination, and implementation.
- Leadership and administration
- Policy and oversight
- Community outreach
- Funding and financial management
- Community planning and land use
- Housing recovery
- Infrastructure recovery
- Natural and cultural resources recovery
- Economic recovery
- Public health and welfare
