You are invited to PARTNERSHIP MONTH April 2024!

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD) invite you to attend Partnership Month 2024. This year’s event will be a month-long celebration of the partnerships that make emergency management possible. It will feature virtual events, and also an in-person day of service.

What is Partnership Month?

FEMA’s Whole Community doctrine recognizes that it takes a full spectrum of diverse partners including voluntary, faith- and community-based organizations, and the private sector, the public, and local, state, territorial, tribal, and federal government agencies working together to effectively respond before, during and after disasters. The annual Partnership Month celebrates and showcases the important work done by our partners.
