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 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00091 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10175 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 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.
