Announcing the Federal Plan for Equitable Long-Term Recovery and Resilience!

Jan 10, 2023 | News

The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) is excited to announce the release of the Federal Plan for Equitable Long-Term Recovery and Resilience (ELTRR), which lays out a whole-of-government approach to strengthen resilience and improve well-being in communities nationwide. Learn more and read the Plan.

Championed by the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health and ODPHP, on behalf of an Interagency Workgroup composed of over 35 federal departments and agencies, the Plan was developed to address the deep disparities in health, well-being, and economic opportunity that were laid bare during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Interagency Workgroup identified opportunities for collaboration to maximize available resources across government agencies and improve resilience in our communities. The vision: “All people and places thriving, no exceptions.”

To realize that vision, the Plan uses the Seven Vital Conditions for Health and Well-BeingThis link is external to as the guiding framework. The vital conditions are:

  • Belonging and Civic Muscle
  • Thriving Natural World
  • Basic Needs for Health and Safety
  • Humane Housing
  • Meaningful Work and Wealth
  • Lifelong Learning
  • Reliable Transportation

Through 78 recommendations, the Plan maps out ways to harmonize and maximize federal resources to help improve the vital conditions.

The Plan’s success depends on collaboration across federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments — and the support of non-governmental partnersThis link is external to The larger the collaboration, the greater the impact. We encourage you to read more about the Plan to learn how you can join this effort.

Together, we can improve resilience and well-being nationwide!
