FEMA Public Assistance Program

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) Program provides supplemental federal disaster grant assistance for debris removal; emergency protective measures; and the repair, replacement, or restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly owned facilities and the facilities of certain private nonprofit organizations. The PA Program also encourages protection of these damaged facilities from future events by providing assistance for hazard mitigation measures during the recovery process.

The federal share of assistance is not less than 75% of the eligible cost for emergency measures and permanent restoration from major disasters or emergencies declared by the President.

State Disaster Relief Program

The State Disaster Relief Program (SDRP) is implemented at the Governor’s discretion, when federal assistance criteria are not met. Local governments and eligible private nonprofit organizations must apply to the program through a written letter of intent within 14 days of the incident. Eligible assistance mirrors the FEMA PA Program. The supplemental assistance is cost-shared between the state and the applicant and the cost share varies depending on the type of natural disaster (50/50 for snow emergencies and 75/25 for all other natural disasters). For snow events, only those entities included in a gubernatorial declaration are eligible to apply. In addition, in order to be eligible for reimbursement, the applicant’s expenditures must exceed ½ of 1 percent of their total annual budget.
