Plexos Group has supported the management of disaster response and recovery programs exceeding $23 billion in federal funding. With more than 200 years of experience in emergency management, recovery, and mitigation, our team of highly skilled professionals is prepared to assist communities with short- and long-term response and recovery programs.

Plexos Group understands how the suite of federal recovery programs, if leveraged properly, can maximize assistance and facilitate a comprehensive recovery within a community. We assist our clients to navigate through every step of the recovery process, including pre-disaster planning, grant management and program administration, and closeout.

We bring in-depth knowledge and understanding of the regulations pertaining to federal short-term and long-term response and recovery programs. Our staff consists of former FEMA officials, state directors of emergency management and community development, Public Assistance Officers (PAO), and retired military with more than 100 years of experience in emergency management and governmental affairs. We understand how other FEMA programs, such as Section 404 and 406 Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs, can be incorporated into a Public Assistance grant and when Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding can be leveraged to help fulfill local match requirements for FEMA Public Assistance.
