Download as PDF 1188 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 22 / Friday, February 1, 2019 / Notices Purpose(s) The purpose of this matching program is to establish or verify initial or continuing eligibility for DHS/FEMA disaster assistance; prevent duplicative disaster assistance payments; or recoup duplicative payments and delinquent debts under the programs referenced in this Agreement, which will result in individuals being quickly and effectively transitioned from temporary relief programs administered by DHS/ FEMA into long-term relief programs administered by HUD. This program also enables HUD’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG–DR) grantees, including states, local governments, and Indian tribes (as directed by the applicable appropriations act), to use FEMA data to determine the correct award amount for eligible program beneficiaries by identifying unmet needs of FEMA applicants; prevent the duplication of benefits; implement the statutory requirement that CDBG–DR funds may not be used for activities reimbursable by or for which funds are made available by FEMA; and implement the statutory requirement to establish procedures to detect and prevent waste, fraud, and abuse of funds. To accomplish this purpose, this program permits HUD to provide data to CDBG–DR allocatees before the grant agreement is signed, so long as the state, local government, or Indian tribe that is awarded the CDBG–DR allocation has entered an information sharing agreement with HUD. For purposes of this program, the term ‘‘CDBG–DR grantee(s)’’ includes CDBG–DR allocatees. In sum, the following programs are covered under this computer matching agreement: 1. DHS/FEMA housing assistance provided through its Individuals and Households Program (IHP) under Section 408(f) of the Stafford Act, 42 U.S.C. 5174(f)(2) 2. HUD rental assistance programs identified at 24 CFR 5.233 and the Disaster Housing Assistance Program. 3. CDBG–DR assistance authorized and appropriated from time to time under various appropriations acts. Categories of Individuals Categories of individuals covered under this matching agreement include individuals seeking federal disaster relief assistance. Categories of Records Data elements disclosed in this matching program include the following: VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:23 Jan 31, 2019 Jkt 247001 • FEMA Registration ID. • Disaster Number. • Social Security Number (SSN)—the head of household SSN. • First and Last Name and Middle Initial of the head of household. • DOB—date of birth of head of household. • Damaged Address Street Address— the head of household’s damaged street address. • Current Address and Phone Number—contact information for the head of household. • Damaged Unit Information— information on the type and level of damage sustained. • Assistance Received—information on the type and amount of assistance the household has received. Data elements, along with the category of information (e.g. identification, damages, contact information, assistance, household characteristics), specifically shared between FEMA and HUD, and how they are matched between them, is outlined in Appendix A of the Computer Matching Agreement.
