Following our discussion of the appeals process, we remind applicants of the statutory deadlines imposed by FEMAwhen implementing your recovery plan.
A reference source for these deadlines is Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations (44 CFR), which imposes the timeline for many disaster response and recovery activities undertaken by FEMA grant applicants. Deadlines are delineated for submitting the Notice of Interest, for identifying damage, for completing work, and for filing appeals, to name a few.
We hope we have sufficiently emphasized the need to keep all records and perform all activities by the book, especially since it is FEMA’s guidelines being followed. It is important to keep accurate records, and follow the scope of work outlined by the applicable Project Worksheet. In the next issue, we will discuss issues such as record-keeping, changes to scope and costs in a PW, and project filing in anticipation of final inspection and close-out.
