Re: Second Appeal, Chabad Hebrew Academy, PA ID: 073-USSYQ-00,
Gani Art Garden, FEMA-1498-DR-CA, Project Worksheets
(PWs) 823 & 1079
Dear Mr. Jacks:
This letter is in response to your February 14, 2005, letter forwarding the above referenced second appeal on behalf of the Chabad Hebrew Academy (Academy). The Academy is appealing $146,461 in costs for repairs to the sculptures and grounds of the Gani Art Garden Sculptures listed under PW 1079, and requesting that the applicant’s name on the PW be corrected from Gani Art Garden to Chabad Hebrew Academy.
As described in the enclosed appeal analysis, I have determined that the Academy has shown that it is the legally responsible applicant for the Gani Art Garden for PW 1079, and has demonstrated that an additional $99,802 in costs for permanent work for repairs to five of the sculptures and the surrounding grounds submitted with the second appeal is eligible for reimbursement. The Academy has not proven that the remaining $46,650 for repairs to four sculptures is eligible. Therefore, the Academy’s appeal is partially approved. The Regional Director will prepare a PW funding the associated scope of work.
Please inform the Academy of my decision. My determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR § 206.206.
