Navigating the Stafford Act and the New FEMA Requirements for Mitigation Assistance

Navigating the Stafford Act and the New FEMA Requirements for Mitigation Assistance

Workshop Facilitators:
John Malueg, Stantec – Senior Principal, Program Manager, Resiliency
Kevin W. Geiger, AICP CFM
Senior Planner, Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission;
Kevin Snyder, Federal Disaster Recovery Coordinator, FEMA Region III
Kürt Blømquist, Emergency Manager and Director, Department of Public Works, City of Keene

Summary: What Will FEMA Fund? Communities expect that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be there to cover the cost of recovery once an extreme weather event, such as tropical storm Irene and Superstorm Sandy is declared a federal disaster. This is rarely the case for disaster recovery and getting funds approved for resilience can be significantly expedited by pre-event planning. In this training, participants learned some of the basics of the FEMA Recovery Programs and received advice on resilience funding and how to avoid pitfalls in the process of navigating Stafford act requirements.
