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 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), Pub. L. 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.
