About the DCM Program

Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) was contracted in July 2009, to partner with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services/Administration for Children and Families (HHS/ACF) to provide disaster case management services in the United States and United States Territories when requested by the State and approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The contract provides for rapid deployment following a disaster and single point of contact for affected individuals who need a variety of services through various organizations. Catholic Charities USA is in the process of recruiting a team of Disaster Case Management Supervisors, Disaster Case Managers and infrastructure positions to include: Team Leaders; National Team Coordinators; Training Specialists; Database/CAN Specialists; Community Coordination Specialists; and Administrative/Logistics Specialists.

The Federal Team of Disaster Case Managers and Case Management Supervisors are comprised of screened, credentialed and trained individuals who are detailed from their agency for deployment to a disaster site.

Within 72 hours of notification, CCUSA will deploy IDCM managers and supervisors and designated infrastructure staff positions to the impacted area for an assignment of not less than fourteen (14) and no more than ninety (90) days, with the option of a 45- day extension. Depending on program needs and the availability of the team members, individuals will be asked to deploy for a minimum of 14 days.

Interested individuals must be employed or sponsored by a partner agency and meet specific eligibility
requirements. Interested agencies are requested to complete the application (under resource listings) for each participating IDCM team member.
