FEMA approves $11.9 million for Hurricane Michael recovery expenses

PANAMA CITY, Fla. FEMA has approved two projects totaling more than $11.9 million for the state of Florida to reimburse Gadsden District Schools and the city of Tallahassee for Hurricane Michael recovery work.

Gadsden District Schools is receiving $1,404,477 for permanent repairs to Shanks Middle School campus, including removing and replacing hurricane-damaged roofing, insulation, windows and lighting fixtures. Additionally, funds cover the costs of hurricane-damaged contents at Shanks Middle School, such as athletic equipment.

Tallahassee is receiving $10,561,390 for repairs to its hurricane-damaged electrical grids. Funds cover repairs to electrical power poles, power distribution lines and transformers throughout the city caused by high winds, rain and flooding.

These grants are funded by FEMA’s Public Assistance program, an essential source of funding for communities recovering from a federally declared disaster or emergency. The Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) works with FEMA during all phases of the program and reviews projects prior to FEMA final approval.

Applicants work directly with FEMA to develop projects and scopes of work. FEMA obligates funding for projects to FDEM after final approval.

Once a project is obligated, FDEM works closely with applicants to finalize grants and begin making payments. FDEM has implemented new procedures designed to ensure grant funding is provided to local communities as quickly as possible.

FEMA’s Public Assistance program provides grants to state, tribal and local governments, and certain private nonprofit organizations, including houses of worship, so communities can quickly respond to and recover from major disasters or emergencies.

Twenty-five providers were listed for Oregon as of Nov. 25. Many have toll-free phone numbers. Before rebuilding, homeowners should contact their local building official and/or floodplain manager to make sure all building requirements are met.

FEMA Approves More Than $3 Million for Maine COVID-19 Costs

REGION I – Maine will receive $3,353,905 from the FEMA for the cost of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for testing and care for the public due to COVID-19. The grant is awarded to the State as reimbursement for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including disposable non-sterile isolation gowns and disposable isolation suits.

The Maine Department of Health and Human Services and Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention distributed the PPE in response to emergency needs from organizations such as first responders, long-term care facilities, frontline caregivers, and others involved in the state’s COVID-19 response. Additionally, the Maine Department of Administrative and Financial Services distributed the PPE to essential State employees.

It is funded through FEMA’s Public Assistance (PA) Grant program which reimburses communities for actions taken in the immediate response and during recovery from a disaster, allowing them to quickly move forward.  Eligible applicants include states, federally recognized tribal governments, U.S. territories, local governments, and certain private non-profit organizations. The grant applications are submitted from the state, which coordinates the process with local governments. 

“FEMA’s Public Assistance grant program is essential to helping communities recovering from a federally declared disaster get back on their feet,” said Regional Administrator and Federal Coordinating Officer Captain Russ Webster, who oversees FEMA’s operations in Maine. The Maine Emergency Management Agency works with FEMA during all phases of the PA program and conducts final reviews of FEMA-approved projects.

“This funding is just one of the positive results of the partnership between FEMA and the State of Maine through Maine Emergency Management Agency,” concluded Webster.

FEMA obligates funding for this project directly to the state of Maine.

Oregon Wildfires: Wells, Septic Systems May be Eligible for FEMA Assistance

Fri, 27 Nov 2020 15:14:43 +0000

Oregon Wildfires: Wells, Septic Systems May be Eligible for FEMA Assistance

Salem, Ore. -- Oregon residents who lost access to water and sewer service through their private wells and septic systems due to the September wildfires could be considered for financial assistance under FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program.

Residents in Clackamas, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Lane, Lincoln, Linn and Marion counties designated for federal assistance to individuals and households due to 2020 wildfires may be eligible for a FEMA award for household repairs not usually covered by insurance. This includes repair or replacement of septic systems and wells damaged by wildfires.

Settlement of a homeowner’s insurance policy is the primary source of money to pay for home repairs following a major disaster. FEMA assistance cannot duplicate insurance coverage. However, households that don’t have insurance or have received an insurance settlement less than the cost to repair serious damage may apply to FEMA for help with costs that are necessary to have a functioning home, including for repair or replacement of private wells and/or septic systems.

Steps to take to be considered for assistance with your private well and/or septic system:

Apply with FEMA: online at DisasterAssistance.gov; through the FEMA App; or by phone at 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585) from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. PST daily. Be sure to report any damages to your well as a result of the disaster. Those who use a Relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel should update FEMA with their assigned number for that service. They should be aware phone calls from FEMA may come from an unidentified number.

If you have applied with FEMA and have not had a home inspection, you should let the FEMA inspector know you have a private well and/or septic system. If you have applied with FEMA and are insured, you should contact the helpline and let them know that you have well/septic damage so that an inspection can be issued.  If you have already had an inspection and your well or septic system wasn’t reported, you may send FEMA a dated and signed letter, along with a contractor’s estimate, indicating you are appealing for the well/septic system.

In situations where you received FEMA assistance for your private well/septic system, but additional help for these costs is needed, you may submit an appeal:

You should provide to FEMA a verifiable estimate/receipt indicating the well/septic system was physically damaged, collapsed, and/or is no longer functioning as a direct result of the disaster. You will need to include a dated and signed letter, along with the contractor’s estimate, indicating you are appealing for the well/septic system.

If the submitted estimates/receipts do not specifically include this information, FEMA will call the contractor to confirm the information.

You may always contact the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585) if you have any questions about your disaster assistance options.

 

                                                                               ###

Disaster recovery assistance is available without regard to race, color, religion, nationality, sex, age, disability, English proficiency or economic status. If you or someone you know has been discriminated against, call FEMA toll-free at 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585). Those who use a Relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel should update FEMA with their assigned number for that service. They should be aware phone calls from FEMA may come from an unidentified number. Multilingual operators are available. (Press 2 for Spanish)

Disaster survivors affected by the Oregon wildfires and straight-line winds can also get personalized mitigation advice to repair and rebuild safer and stronger from a FEMA Mitigation Specialist. For information on how to rebuild safer and stronger or to inquire as to your new flood risk following a fire near you, email FEMA-R10-MIT@fema.dhs.gov, a FEMA Hazard Mitigation specialist will respond survivor inquiries.

FEMA Awards $1.5 Million to the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music

FEMA Awards $1.5 Million to the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music

GUAYNABO, Puerto Rico — The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded nearly $1.5 million to repair the Puerto Rico Conservatory of Music for damages caused by Hurricane María. Beyond being a specialized public university, the Conservatory is a symbol of Puerto Rico’s heritage and musical traditions.

To help preserve the unique qualities of this facility, a team of FEMA specialists carefully assessed the damage and construction of the historic structure. Among other measures, these experts considered the fusion of modern features embedded in a building that dates from the XIX Century and is the last construction work completed by the Spanish government on the island.

“The Conservatory is an iconic place for music in Puerto Rico. Given its historic nature, it’s important to restore this facility for future generations,” said the Federal Disaster Recovery Coordinator for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, José Baquero Tirado.

On the other hand, about $367,000 of the funds allocated are destined for mitigation measures to prevent similar damage in future disasters. These include upgrades to avoid water leaks in the roof and windows, which caused most of the damage to this structure.

Professor Pedro Segarra Sisamone, the conservatory’s rector, said FEMA’s evaluation was very comprehensive. “Once the appropriate materials for the restoration were determined, the costs were estimated,” he said.

The Conservatory is home to piano laboratories, a library, concert halls and an amphitheater. In addition to its undergraduate academic offerings, which serve 400 students, the Conservatory offers programs such as “100x35 Music” and the Preparatory School. These develop social skills through music and have a combined total of nearly 1,600 students.

“We are very pleased to help the Conservatory of Music continue offering community and educational services. Music is an art form that has helped us so much during these times and Puerto Rico has an enormous pool of talent that must continue to develop. We appreciate the Conservatory staff members for their great efforts and achievements, particularly during these past months,” said the executive director of the Central Office for Recovery, Reconstruction and Resilience, Ottmar Chávez.

To date, FEMA has obligated nearly $19.3 billion for costs related to hurricanes Irma and María, including projects to help rebuild infrastructure throughout Puerto Rico. FEMA works with COR3 through the agency’s Public Assistance program to obligate recovery funds to private nonprofit organizations, municipalities and agencies of the Government of Puerto Rico.
