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 below policies are approved and final documents.

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.”

The PA Management Costs Interim Policy implements Section 1215 of the DRRA and provides greater flexibility to state, tribal, territorial and local governments to manage the PA Program.
