  • Eligibility of Force Account Labor Straight-Time Costs under the Public Assistance Program for Hurricane Sandy

    The Fiscal Year 2007 Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act authorized a Public Assistance Pilot Program intended to reduce the costs to the Federal government of providing assistance to States and local governments; increase
    flexibility in the administration of assistance; and expedite the provision of assistance under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. Due to the current pressing need for efficient and timely recovery from a catastrophic disaster event, Hurricane Sandy, which has cast widespread debris over a major portion of the eastern seaboard of the United States, this rule implements one of the debris-related Public Assistance Pilot procedures: it allows for the reimbursement of the straight- or regular time salaries and benefits of the employees of Public Assistance applicants who perform disaster-related debris and wreckage removal work for any major disaster or emergency declared by the President on or after October 27, 2012, in response to Hurricane Sandy.

  • La recuperación del huracán Sandy: un año después

    El huracán Sandy tocó tierra en el sur de New Jersey la noche del 29 de octubre de 2012. Sus efectos se sintieron en más de una docena de estados. FEMA y sus colaboradores trabajan estrechamente con los sobrevivientes de desastre para garantizar que reciban todo tipo de asistencia a la que son elegibles según se recuperan de este devastador acontecimiento. Un año después, más de 182,000 sobrevivientes han recibido más de $1,400 millones en asistencia individual, y otros $2,400 millones han sido aprobados en la forma de préstamos con bajo interés de la Agencia Federal para el Desarrollo de la Pequeña Empresa (SBA, por sus siglas en inglés). El Programa Nacional de Seguro contra Inundación (NFIP, por sus siglas en inglés) ha pagado más de $7,900 millones a titulares de pólizas por daños sufridos, y FEMA ha aprobado más de $3,200 millones para financiar trabajos de emergencia, el removido de escombros, y la reparación y reemplazo de infraestructura.

  • Designating a Representative in the Sandy Claims Review Process

    FEMA designed the Hurricane Sandy Claims Review process to be transparent and customer friendly, and we do not believe that a policyholder must engage an attorney or other representative to receive fair treatment. This process is intended to ensure that the policyholder receives all money owed on their Hurricane Sandy flood insurance claim.
    FEMA recognizes that a policyholder may choose to be represented through the process. If so, FEMA will work with a policyholder’s representative to meet the needs of the policyholder and the NFIP. We also recognize that a policyholder’s NFIP claim information is confidential and subject to the Privacy Act, a federal law that guards the personal information of all Americans. FEMA therefore needs to ensure that a representative is appropriately designated and authorized to speak and receive information on behalf of the policyholder.
