Section 20601 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (BBA) authorizes FEMA to “provide assistance, pursuant to Section 428 of the Stafford Act… for critical services as defined in Section 406.” This authority allows FEMA to provide assistance to restore disaster-damaged facilities or systems that provide the specifically identified critical services to an industry standard without regard to pre-disaster condition. The authority is exclusive to assistance authorized by the major disaster declarations issued to Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands following Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
FEMA P-2021 | Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricanes Irma and Maria in the U.S. Virgin Islands
Building Performance Observations, Recommendations, and Technical Guidance.
In response to a request for technical support from the Federal Emergency Management (FEMA) Joint Field Office in St. Croix, FEMA’s Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration’s (FIMA) Building Science Branch deployed a Mitigation Assessment Team (MAT) composed of national and regional experts to affected areas in St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix, in October and November, 2017.
The MAT was charged with evaluating damage from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, especially for buildings constructed or reconstructed after Hurricane Marilyn (1995), to identify both successful and unsuccessful mitigation techniques. This work involved: assessing the performance of residential, nonresidential, and critical facilities affected by the storms; evaluating the performance of photovoltaic (PV) facilities; investigating the effects of wind speed-up due to the islands’ topography on building performance; and meeting with residents and local officials to better understand what transpired during and after the storms.

A flowchart that shows what disaster assistance may be available to a disaster survivor based on his or her circumstance and eligibility. The survivor may be initially assisted by voluntary agencies and mass care providers offering food, shelter, clothing and medical needs. The survivor may also receive insurance payments from his or her homeowners, property and flood insurance policies. Federal Assistance may also become available for uninsured or underinsured needs, or when insurance benefits are significantly delayed. For example, FEMA may provide the survivor disaster housing assistance for lodging expense reimbursement, temporary sheltering, home rental, repairs, or replacement. FEMA may also provide Other Needs Assistance, or ONA, for disaster related medical, dental, childcare, and funeral expenses. A disaster survivor may also be assisted through a low interest loan for real and personal property losses from the Small Business Administration, or SBA. FEMA will coordinate with whole community partners to address remaining unmet needs once an applicant has received all Federal assistance for which they are eligible. It is important to note that eligibility for Federal Assistance is based on each applicants’ individual circumstances as they relate to each program’s conditions of eligibility. Not all applicants will be eligible for all forms of Federal Assistance.
