Public Assistance: Roles and Responsibilities

Main Content

The Public Assistance (PA) Program is administered through a coordinated effort between the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the State (grantee), and the applicants (subgrantees).

While all three entities must work together to meet the overall objective of quick, efficient, effective program delivery, each has a different role.

FEMA's primary responsibilities are to determine the amount of funding, participate in educating the applicant on specific program issues and procedures, assist the applicant with the development of projects, and review the projects for compliance.
