This page documents the metadata for the Public Assistance Applicants API data feed.
This dataset lists summarized Applicant (sub-grantee) information that supplements the "Public Assistance Funded Projects Detail" dataset. This is raw, unedited data from FEMA's National Emergency Management Information System (NEMIS) and as such is subject to a small percentage of human error. The financial information is derived from NEMIS and not FEMA's official financial systems. Due to differences in reporting periods, status of obligations and how business rules are applied, this financial information may differ slightly from official publication on public websites such as usaspending.gov; this dataset is not intended to be used for any official federal financial reporting.
