SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice of this meeting is given under the 
Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. App. (Pub. L. 92-463). The 
National Advisory Council (NAC) advises the Administrator of the 
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on all aspects of emergency 
management. The NAC incorporates State, local, and Tribal governments, 
and private sector partners' input in the development and revision of 
FEMA policies and strategies. FEMA's Office of the NAC serves as the 
focal point for all NAC coordination.


    The NAC will meet for the purpose of reviewing the progress and/or 
potential recommendations of its four subcommittees: Preparedness and 
Protection, Response and Recovery, Public Engagement and Mission 
Support, and Federal Insurance and Mitigation.
    The NAC will discuss the Presidential Policy Directive 8 (PPD-8) on 
National Preparedness, the Campaign to Build and Sustain Preparedness, 
the National Mitigation Framework, the National Response Framework, the 
National Preparedness Goal, the Emergency Management Institute (EMI), 
Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) program, National 
Disaster Recovery Framework, and the personal disaster assistance and 
individual assistance programs. A FEMA Program Office will brief the 
Council on Emerging Topics in Emergency Management during lunch, 
scheduled for 12:20 p.m. PST to 1:20 p.m. PST.
    PPD-8, signed on March 30, 2011, directs the development of a 
national preparedness goal that identifies the core capabilities 
necessary for preparedness and a national preparedness system to guide 
activities that will enable the Nation to achieve the goal. PPD-8 
replaces Homeland Security Presidential Directive 8 (HSPD-8) and Annex 
1. More information on PPD-8, the Frameworks, and the National 
Preparedness Goal, may be found at http://www.fema.gov/prepared/ppd8.shtm.
    EMI serves as the national focal point for the development and 
delivery of emergency management training to enhance the capabilities 
of State, local, and Tribal government officials; volunteer 
organizations; FEMA's disaster workforce; other Federal agencies; and 
the public and private sectors to minimize the impact of disasters and 
emergencies on the American public.
    EMPG provides funding to assist State and local governments to 
sustain and enhance all-hazards emergency management capabilities. More
