Lifeline Infrastructure Hub - A public-private partnership to assist the nation with community resilience and recovery after disasters

Lifeline Infrastructure Hub

Our nation is experiencing an urgent need to better understand and improve aging and unreliable lifeline systems. These systems include water, wastewater, electricity, natural gas, liquid fuels, communications, and multi-modal transportation—highways and roads, rail, airports, and ports and harbors.

Particularly as natural disasters grow more frequent and destructive, lifeline services are critical to protect our communities and essential for disaster recovery.

The NIBS Lifeline Infrastructure Hub aims to help the nation with community resilience and recovery after disasters. Robust partnerships with government, the private sector, and various stakeholders to advance this effort are crucial for our safety and security.
