PA ID# 119-U4TO1-00; Holiday Shores Neighborhood Association
PW ID# N/A; Eligibility Determination
FEMA-1681-DR-IL, Holiday Shores Neighborhood Association
Private Non-Profit Eligibility and Applicant Eligibility
The Holiday Shores Neighborhood Association (Association) submitted a Request for Public Assistance (RPA) and requested reimbursement for debris removal. The Association was denied eligibility because it did not meet the regulatory requirements in 44 CFR §206.221(e)(f), which defines those private non-profit (PNP) facilities that are eligible for Public Assistance funding. Both Madison County and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency denied the Association’s request for assistance. FEMA denied the first appeal on the basis that this PNP did not meet the eligibility requirements for Public Assistance funding because it provides services to the property owners and not to the general public at large. In its second appeal, the Association asserted that it is not a private membership association and referenced the Recovery Division Fact Sheet, Debris Removal from Private Property, October 21, 2005, to base its eligibility for Public Assistance grants.
Is the Association eligible for Public Assistance?
