Disaster Assistance; Change in Federal Share for Alternate Projects for Public Facilities
Document Number: E8-8186
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-04-16
Agency: Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security
This final rule makes a conforming amendment to the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Public Assistance regulations to reflect two changes to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (the Stafford Act) made by the Security and Accountability For Every Port Act of 2006 (the SAFE Port Act). The first change amends the percentage of the Federal contribution for alternate projects from 75 percent to 90 percent of the Federal share of the Federal estimate of eligible costs for public facilities. The second change removes language that provided for Federal funding of 90 percent of the Federal share of the approved Federal estimate of eligible costs for alternate projects in areas with unstable soil. These changes are technical and conforming amendments that revise FEMA's regulations to conform with amendments to the Stafford Act. FEMA is exercising no discretion in implementing these changes.
