o Gloucester County submitted grant closeout paperwork for a combined acquisition/elevation project. FEMA Region III requested additional documentation including NFIP insurance coverage and justification for disallowed costs including medical documentation for reasonable accommodations. Upon review of the additional data, Region III informed VDEM that nine properties had insufficient flood insurance and that costs related to changes in scope of work (SOW) for 13 properties and excessive management costs were ineligible. VDEM appealed the determination on behalf of Gloucester County.
• Reason for Denial
o Region III based the denial of the 1st appeal on a series issues, including insufficient flood insurance coverage of four properties, unapproved changes to SOW on 11 properties and management costs not commensurate with the final SOW.
