Second Appeal Brief
PA ID# 031-UDCOJ-00; Middle Village Homes Corporation
PW ID# N/A; PNP Eligibility
Citation: FEMA-1910-DR-MD, Middle Village Homes Corporation, PNP Eligibility
Reference: PNP, Private Property and Private Roads
Summary: Following the severe snow and winter storm disaster declaration in February 2010, Middle Village Homes Corporation (Corporation) submitted a Request for Public Assistance (RPA) to apply for reimbursement of snow removal from its roads. FEMA denied the Corporation’s request because it is a private homeowner’s association and its roads are not eligible facilities. In the first appeal, the Corporation stated that the community’s roads served as emergency facilities because they provided the only access to or from homes during the disaster. FEMA denied the first appeal on September 1, 2010, citing FEMA Disaster Assistance Policy DAP9521.3, Private Nonprofit (PNP) Facility Eligibility, section 7. B(5)(h), which specifically defines facilities maintained by property owners’ associations, such as roads and recreational facilities, as facilities that are not eligible for Public Assistance.
Issues: 1. Is the Middle Village Home Corporation an eligible Private Nonprofit organization?
Findings: 1. No
Rationale: 44 CFR §206.222(b) and §206.221(e); DAP9521.3, Private Nonprofit (PNP) Facility Eligibility
