FEMA is directed by the Earthquake Hazards Reduction Act of 1977 to establish a network of grants and assistance that would enable States to develop alleviating techniques, preparedness and response plans that would increase the nation's level of awareness regarding earthquakes and other earthquake-related conditions.

The Department of Homeland Security, the agency under which FEMA operates, is the government's primary agency responsible for protecting the country from terrorist attacks, man-made accidents, and natural disasters.

For the fiscal year 2011, the Department of Homeland Security received an allocated budget of $98.8 billion to be used in continuously reducing America's vulnerability to terrorism and minimizing the damages brought about by potential incidents and natural disasters.
