Dear Mr. Urbas:
This letter is in response to your letter dated June 27, 2008, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of King County (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Securitys Federal Emergency Management Agencys (FEMA)
de-obligation of funds for repairs to the King County Courthouse.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I determined that the insurance deductible ($2,443,600) is an eligible cost. FEMA funding of the insurance deductibles does not duplicate funding that the Applicant received from other sources. Therefore, I am granting the appeal. By copy of this letter, I am requesting that the Acting Regional Administrator take appropriate action to implement this determination.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals.
James A. Walke
Acting Assistant Administrator
