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. The ‘‘Other Needs Assistance’’ (ONA) provision of IHP provides disaster assistance to address needs other than housing, such as personal property, transportation, etc. The delivery of the ONA provision of IHP is contingent upon the State/Tribe choosing an administrator for the assistance. States/Tribes satisfy the selection of an administrator of ONA by completing the Administrative Option Agreement (FEMA Form 010–0–11), which establishes a plan for the delivery of ONA. This agreement establishes a partnership with FEMA and inscribes PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the plan for the delivery of disaster assistance. The agreement is used to identify the State/Tribe’s proposed level of support and participation during disaster recovery. In response to Super Storm Sandy (October 2012), Congress added ‘‘child care’’ expenses as a category of ONA 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 ONA. In light of this legislation, FEMA needs to change FEMA Form 010–0–11 so that States/Tribes who want to administer ONA can choose ‘‘child care’’ expenses as one of the categories. Without having this option on the form, FEMA cannot meet statutory requirement to consult with the Governor of a State (or Tribal Executive) with respect to providing IHP ONA.

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. The ``Other Needs 
Assistance'' (ONA) provision of IHP provides disaster assistance to 
address needs other than housing, such as personal property, 
transportation, etc.
    The delivery of the ONA provision of IHP is contingent upon the 
State/Tribe choosing an administrator for the assistance. States/Tribes 
satisfy the selection of an administrator of ONA by completing the 
Administrative Option Agreement (FEMA Form 010-0-11), which establishes

partnership with FEMA and inscribes the plan for the delivery of 
disaster assistance. The agreement is used to identify the State/
Tribe's proposed level of support and participation during disaster 
recovery. In response to Super Storm Sandy (October 2012), Congress 
added ``child care'' expenses as a category of ONA through the Sandy 
Recovery Improvement Act of 2013 (SRIA), Public Law 113-2. Section 1108
