Post-Katrina Emergency Management Policy Reforms

The devastation and failures before, during, and after Hurricane Katrina forced Congress to make a series of reforms. Many groups designated as special populations were at the most risk during the superstorm.

Based on this calamity, the Post-Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006 (PKEMRA) mandated that Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Regional Administrators identify gaps in the region concerning the needs of special populations.

There are many groups the federal government considers to be special populations. These groups include, but are not limited to:

  • Children
  • Persons living in institutionalized settings
  • Limited English proficiency citizens
  • Non-English-speaking citizens
  • People with intellectual disabilities
  • Deaf community
  • Elderly
  • Transportation disadvantaged
