  • Disaster Administrative Cost Report

    This document responds to the reporting requirement set forth in Section 4 of the Directing Dollars to Disaster Relief Act of 2015 (Pub. L. No. 114-132). In February 2016, the President signed the Directing Dollars to Disaster Relief Act of 2015 (the Act) into law. The Act requires the FEMA Administrator to: (1) develop and implement an integrated plan to control and reduce administrative costs for major disasters; (2) compare the costs and benefits of tracking administrative cost data for major disasters by the public assistance, individual assistance, hazard mitigation and mission assignment programs, and if feasible, track this information; and (3) clarify Agency guidance and minimum documentation requirements for a direct administrative cost claimed by a grantee or subgrantee of a public assistance grant program. The Act includes annual reporting requirements for seven years and three-and five-year updates to the annual reports.

  • Hermit Park Open Space Day-Use Areas Environmental Assessment Larimer, Colorado

    Hermit Park Open Space Day-Use Areas Environmental Assessment

    Larimer County Parks and Open Space, Larimer, Colorado

    PW 321; FEMA - DR-4145 – DR - CO

    April 2017

    Larimer County Natural Resource Department has applied, through the Colorado Office of Emergency Management (OEM), to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for funding to construct day-use areas in Hermit Park Open Space in Larimer County. Several parks and open space areas throughout Larimer County were badly damaged by severe storms and flooding that occurred during the first few days of the official incident period of September 11, 2013 through October 31, 2013. The United States President declared the event a major disaster (FEMA-4145-DR-CO) on September 14, 2013. This declaration authorizes FEMA to provide financial assistance to eligible state, local, and tribal governments, including Larimer County, Colorado. FEMA has awarded Larimer County 75 percent of the eligible costs to repair or replace damages within the County to their pre-flood conditions through the Public Assistance Alternative Procedures (PAAP) Pilot Program. Through the PAAP, Larimer County (County) would use the PAAP funding to complete projects in a manner other than replacing or repairing pre-flood conditions. The County is seeking FEMA assistance to fund three separate day-use areas throughout Hermit Park Open Space (HPOS).

    Due to the federal nexus resulting from FEMA, procedures outlined in the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) are required. FEMA-funded projects are required to comply with NEPA regulations, and other applicable environmental state and federal regulations and/or Executive Orders (EO).

    FEMA, the County, AVI Professional Corporation (AVI), and Pinyon Environmental, Inc. (Pinyon) (the Project Team) have determined that the proposed action to build the HPOS day-use areas requires an Environmental Assessment (EA) as the appropriate level of NEPA documentation. Pinyon was retained by the County to prepare the EA according to FEMA Environmental Historic Preservation (EHP) Region 8 standards. The purpose of this EA is to concisely document the project’s compliance with NEPA, and other state and federal regulations and/or EOs.

    This Environmental Assessment has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and FEMA Instruction 108-1-1.

  • Mitigation Best Practice - Hazard Mitigation Grant Ensures Bayfield County will be Prepared for Power Outages

    An historic courthouse in Wisconsin was experiencing multiple power outages each year. The building is a critical structure that houses most county offices and is also designed as an emergency shelter for the area. A solution to the power outages that affected critical services to the community needed to be designed. 

    Finding a solution required exploring grant opportunities available at FEMA. See how they were able to solve their problem

  • Miigation Best Practice - Hazard Mitigation Works in Bayfield County to Prevent Damage

    When the Horseshoe Creek in Bayfield County, Wisconsin floods, it sometimes causes the closure of Nicoletti Road. It is not only an inconvenience for motorists but was also a safety concern since a road washout could become an obstacle for first responder vehicles. That’s why the Town of Clover decided to take action and develop a hazard mitigation strategy to replace a culvert with a larger one that would help alleviate flooding issues.
