Under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Office of National Capital Region Coordination is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The Office was established by the Federal Homeland Security Act of 2002 as the directorate of National Capital Region Coordination for Emergency Response within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The Office oversees and coordinates federal homeland security programs for and relationships with State, local and regional authorities in the National Capital Region. That region includes Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, seventeen local jurisdictions, regional authorities, and private companies responsible for critical communication and electrical infrastructure.

Geographically, the National Capital Region was defined by the National Capital Region Planning Act of 1952 as the District of Columbia, two Maryland counties, and four Virginia counties. The Maryland components are Montgomery and Prince George's counties, and the municipalities of Bowie, College Park, Gaithersburg, Greenbelt, Rockville, and Takoma Park. In Virginia, Arlington, Fairfax, Loudon, and Prince William counties are included, as are the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park.
