Job Description

Summary

When disaster strikes, America looks to FEMA. Now FEMA looks to you. Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident.

This position will serve as an Environmental and Historic Preservation (EHP) Specialist and support Environmental and Historic Preservation compliance within the Public Assistance (PA) Consolidated Resource Center (CRC) in Denton, TX. The position will help ensure EHP compliance is understood and incorporated as appropriate into Public Assistance subgrants. The position will conduct a completeness review to ensure that the Scopes of Works are sufficient for EHP to begin their review during the EHP review phase. This position will also ensure that a defined set of Public Assistance projects are compliant with EHP laws, regulations, and executive orders; and prepare a Record of Environmental Consideration. This position starts at a salary of $65,479 (IC-11) and $78,482 (IC-12).

Apply for this exciting opportunity to become a member of the Texas Recovery Team within FEMA.

EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.

This position is being announced under FEMA's Cadre of On-call Response/Recovery Employee (CORE) Program. This is a temporary appointment in the Excepted Service, not to exceed 2 years, with the option to extend based on workload and funding availability. Veterans Preference does not apply to the CORE selection process.
