Description

The 'Public Assistance Applicants Program Deliveries' dataset includes data from the FEMA PA Grants Manager/Grants Portal system. In 2016, FEMA developed this two-part platform as a new information technology system to document PA projects in formulation with a seamless transition to grant obligation. This dataset includes all active subrecipients/applicants, and summarizes their projects by their status in the PA national delivery model process. The PA delivery model dataset differs from other dataset as it specifies what phase current grants are in and this can be time sensitive to the public. It will also provide the phase for better context into the Grants Awards activity which is focused on only awarded Grants.

Short description of the PA Phases:

Phase I - Operational Planning: Identify applicants' disaster impacts and recovery priorities.

Phase II - Damage Intake and Eligibility Analysis: Capture and document all of the incident-related damages

Phase III - Scoping and Costing: Further develop PA grant projects for final processing.

Phase IV - Obligation: Obligate projects.

The establishment of the Grants Manager and Grant Portal as the processing system for all new PA grants has reduced the role of its predecessor, the Emergency Management Mission Integration Environment (EMMIE). When all remaining EMMIE functions are moved to the Grants Manager and Grants Portal in the near future, EMMIE will be sunsetted and the Grants Manager and Grants Portal will become the official system of record. Currently, EMMIE remains the official system of record for obligations.
