Re:Second Appeal- Greater Lafourche Port Commission, PA ID 057-UPFLP-00, Port Fourchon Beach Erosion Control Structure, FEMA-1792-DR-LA, Project Worksheet (PW) 01504
Dear Mr. Davis:
This is in response to your January 24, 2012 letter, which transmitted the referenced second appeal on behalf of Greater Lafourche Port Commission (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) denial of $897,298 in funding for placing dredged materials in front of a beach erosion control structure.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, I have determined that the Applicant submitted sufficient documentation to support $897,298 in funding for placing dredged materials in front of a beach erosion control structure.Therefore, I am approving the appeal for $897,298.By copy of this letter, I request that the Regional Administrator take appropriate action to implement this determination.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision.This determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR §206.206, Appeals. Sincerely,
