Re: Second Appeals–Harris County, PA ID 020-99201-00, Reliant Park Repair, FEMA-1791-DR-TX, Project Worksheet (PWs) 2372, 3052, and 6943
Dear Chief Kidd,
This letter is in response to letters from your office dated June 16, 2010, December 14, 2010, and April 4, 2011, which transmitted the referenced second appeals on behalf of Harris County (Applicant). The Applicant is appealing the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) denial of funding in the amount of $6,085,840 for repairs to facilities in the Reliant Park complex after Hurricane Ike.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, the Applicant did not provide sufficient evidence to prove that the requested increases in scopes of work for the permanent repair of the Reliant Center and Reliant Stadium were a direct result of the declared disaster. I have determined that the Regional Administrator’s decisions in the first appeals are consistent with Public Assistance regulations and policy. Accordingly, I am denying the second appeals.
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination is the final decision on this matter pursuant to Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations (44 CFR) §206.206 Appeals.

Office of Response and Recovery
