FEMA received one comment from one respondent.

The commenter did approve of funds being used for cleanup. They also stated that government should be smaller. FEMA appreciates receiving this comment although the comment is not directly related to the cost and hour burden. If a grant is approved, the funds only pay for minimum pre-fire activities and these must be pre-approved in order to be eligible for funding. The funds used for pre-fire activities pay for prepositioning equipment and personnel so a fire can be more quickly mitigated and contained, which helps reduce government fire-fighting costs.
