FEMA-1251-DR-MS, Disaster Survey Reports 09475 and 09476

Dear Mr. Meadows:

This is in response to your December 10, 2003, letter on behalf of the Harrison County Board of Supervisors (“the County”) contesting the audit findings and subsequent deobligation of federal funding for debris removal work under FEMA-1251-DR-MS.

Pursuant to 44 CFR § 206.206(a), the County must submit all appeals through the State of Mississippi (as grantee) to FEMA’s Regional Director. It is our understanding that the State has received a copy of the appeal and has forwarded it to FEMA, where it has been accepted for consideration as a first appeal.

We are sending your original letter and supporting documentation to State Director Latham.
