RAPT - Resilience Analysis and Planning Tool (FEMA)

Access this resource

FEMA released expanded capabilities to the Resilience Analysis and Planning Tool (RAPT) related to coronavirus pandemic planning and response efforts.

The tool is a free-to-use GIS web map tool that allows users to combine layers of community resilience indicators, infrastructure locations, and hazard data to visualize, prioritize and implement strategies to impact resilience, response, and recovery.

The updated RAPT provides important census-tract level demographic information and infrastructure locations including:

  • The location and size of infrastructure entities such as hospitals, nursing homes, urgent care facilities, public health departments, and pharmacies.
  • Population count and demographics of individuals within a containment zone (e.g. over age 65, disability, educational attainment)
  • Visualization tools.
