Regional Long-Term Recovery

DEMHS Region 4 Recovery Steering Committee

Meeting Information

The DEMHS Region 4 Recovery Steering Committee is organized under Regional Emergency Support Function 14, Long-Term Recovery and Mitigation, and follows the State’s Disaster Recovery Framework. “Region 4” refers to Region 4 of the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP), Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS). DEMHS Region 4 includes every SCCOG-member municipality, as well as both affiliate Tribal Nations, and 22 other municipalities in eastern Connecticut.

Membership

The DEMHS Region 4 Recovery Steering Committee is comprised of local officials, the Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments, Northeastern Connecticut Council of Governments (NECCOG), and non-profit organizations (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOADs)).

Regional Resilience Baseline Assessment

The State of Connecticut contracted with the Global Resilience Institute (GRI), out of Northeastern University, to produce baseline assessments of the initial and on-going impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic, in each of Connecticut’s five DEMHS regions.

The baseline assessment provides a firm knowledge base to the Recovery Steering Committee. The report can be used to identify fundable initiatives moving forward, and served to demonstrate need for such funding. The final report for DEMHS Region 4 was completed in late February 2021.
