Schulz: One other thing that I think is important in this discussion — and it’s a separate issue from FEMA’s perspective but there is so much interconnection that the topics should be discussed together — is the New Delivery Model, as it was referred to a few years ago. That should allow for more State-Led processes, so I think the two subjects fit hand in glove. I’m a believer in both the New Delivery Model, which I think simplified some things, and the State-Led program as long as we formalize it and leave enough flexibility to account for the differences among states and the differences in disasters.

“As far as how you approach this philosophically, my advice to the states is remember: it’s all about the people we serve.”
