Section 324 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as amended (Stafford Act) authorizes the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide funding under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) for management costs incurred in the administration of HMGP. The Disaster Recovery Reform Act (DRRA) amends Section 324 of the Stafford Act and requires FEMA to provide HMGP funding for management costs at the following percentage rates: “A grantee [recipient] under section 404 may be reimbursed not more than 15 percent of the total amount of the grant award under such section of which not more than 10 percent may be used by the grantee and 5 percent by the subgrantee [subrecipient] for such costs.”
Because of the amendment to Section 324, Title 44 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 207 is no longer effective. This policy implements the new amendment to Section 324 and thereby supersedes existing regulations and policies related to management costs, including the Hazard Mitigation Assistance Guidance, as applicable, and applies to all major disasters declared on or after August 1, 2017.
On October 5, 2018, the President signed the Disaster Recovery Reform Act of 2018 (DRRA) into law as part of the Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 2018. The Section 1215 of the DRRA changed Section 324 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as Amended (Stafford Act). As a result of the amendment to Section 324, Title 44 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 207 is no longer effective.
The risks faced by a community can directly impact and limit those responsible for delivering core capabilities. The scope and magnitude of a catastrophic incident may result in a resource scarce environment. Because such incidents may affect an organization’s ability to provide assets, assistance, and services, continuity planning and operations are an inherent component of each core capability and the coordinating structures that provide them. Continuity operations increase resilience and the likelihood that organizations can perform essential functions and deliver core capabilities that support the mission areas

Building Performance Observations, Recommendations, and Technical Guidance
In response to Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) deployed a Mitigation Assessment Team (MAT) to evaluate damage, document observations, and, based on these, offer conclusions and recommendations on the performance of buildings and other structures affected by wind forces, flooding, and other hazards due to the hurricanes. The MAT included FEMA Headquarters and Regional Office engineers, representatives from other Federal agencies, government officials from the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and experts from academia and the design and construction industries.
The conclusions and recommendations in this report are intended to provide decision makers, designers, contractors, planners, code officials, industry groups, government officials, academia, homeowners, and business owners and operators with information and technical guidance that can be used to reduce future hurricane damage.
Marketing resources -- including letters, brochures, postcards -- to help agents communicate to clients about flood risk and the importance of flood insurance.

Tsunamis are among nature’s most powerful and destructive forces. Although they cannot be prevented, there are actions people can take before, during, and after a tsunami that can save lives. Coastal residents and visitors must be educated about their tsunami risk, how to appropriately respond to tsunamis, and how to prepare for potential impacts. Coastal communities play a central role in providing this education.
