As you can see, there are numerous things to consider before restoring a facility. In some cases, you may qualify for a new facility or perhaps even a new facility relocated to a safer location.
Regardless of whether you are going to repair, replace or relocate — you must present a detailed scope of work (and estimate if possible) for returning the facility to pre-disaster condition, as that serves as the first step in all three potential scenarios. It is equally important to engage your local codes officials — including the floodplain administrator — in the process early on to ensure that all required work is contemplated.
The FEMA Public Assistance Program provides applicants with numerous options and opportunities, especially for those who understand the program well enough to adequately advocate for and defend their position(s).
