Special Community Disaster Loans Program
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes to amend its regulations regarding the Special Community Disaster Loans Program to implement loan cancellation provisions for Special Community Disaster Loans provided by FEMA to local governments in the Gulf region following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. This rule does not propose the automatic cancellation of all Special Community Disaster Loans. This rule proposes procedures and requirements for governments who received Special Community Disaster Loans to apply for cancellation of loan obligations as authorized by the U.S. Troop Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery, and Iraq Accountability Appropriations Act, 2007. The proposed procedures are intended to provide sufficient information to FEMA to determine when cancellation of a Special Community Disaster Loan, in whole or in part, is warranted. This proposed rule would not apply to any loans made under FEMA's traditional Community Disaster Loan program which is governed under separate regulations.
Technical, Organizational and Conforming Amendments; Title 44 CFR Chapter I
By this final rule, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is making editorial and technical changes throughout chapter I of title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to reflect the current organization and procedures of the agency. This rule updates organization names, removes the internal delegations of authority from part 2, and makes conforming amendments and technical corrections, and will have no substantive effect on the regulated public.
