SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121–5207 (the Act) is the legal basis for FEMA to provide disaster related assistance and services to individuals who apply for disaster assistance benefits in the event of a federally declared disaster. The Individuals and Households Program (IHP) (the Act at 5174, Federal Assistance to Individuals and Households) provides financial assistance to eligible individuals and households who, as a direct result of a major disaster or emergency have necessary expenses and serious needs. PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62643 Individuals and households that apply for this assistance must provide information detailing their losses and needs. In response to Super Storm Sandy (October 2012), Congress added ‘‘child care’’ expenses as a category of IHP assistance through the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act of 2013 (SRIA), Public Law 113–2. Section 1108 of the SRIA amends section 408(e)(1) of the Stafford Act (42 U.S.C. 5174(e)(1)), giving FEMA the specific authority to pay for ‘‘child care’’ expenses as disaster assistance under the Other Needs Assistance (ONA) provision of IHP in addition to funeral, medical and dental expenses. FEMA’s current registration application and script for IHP disaster assistance does not ask questions regarding a survivor/registrant’s need for assistance with ‘‘child care’’ expenses. Thus, FEMA needs to change its application to include a question about whether the survivor/registrant needs financial assistance for child care expenses as a result of a disaster. FEMA also needs to collect necessary paperwork from the survivor/registrant to determine eligibility and verify the expenses associated with child care through correspondence with the survivor/registrant.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and 
Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121-5207 (the Act) is the legal 
basis for FEMA to provide disaster related assistance and services to 
individuals who apply for disaster assistance benefits in the event of 
a federally declared disaster. The Individuals and Households Program 
(IHP) (the Act at 5174, Federal Assistance to Individuals and 
Households) provides financial assistance to eligible individuals and 
households who, as a direct result of a major disaster or emergency 
have necessary expenses and serious needs. Individuals and households 
that apply for this assistance must provide information detailing their 
losses and needs. In response to Super Storm Sandy (October 2012), 
Congress added ``child care'' expenses as a category of IHP assistance 
through the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act of 2013 (SRIA), Public Law 
113-2. Section 1108 of the SRIA amends section 408(e)(1) of the 
Stafford Act (42 U.S.C. 5174(e)(1)), giving FEMA the specific authority 
to pay for ``child care'' expenses as disaster assistance under the 
Other Needs Assistance (ONA) provision of IHP in addition to funeral, 
medical and dental expenses.
    FEMA's current registration application and script for IHP disaster 
assistance does not ask questions regarding a survivor/registrant's 
need for assistance with ``child care'' expenses. Thus, FEMA needs to 
change its application to include a question about whether the 
survivor/registrant needs financial assistance for child care expenses 
as a result of a disaster. FEMA also needs to collect necessary 
paperwork from the survivor/registrant to determine eligibility and 
verify the expenses associated with child care through correspondence 
with the survivor/registrant.
