Federal Disaster Assistance: Improved Criteria Needed to Assess a Jurisdictionńˇ╗s Capability to Respond and Recover on Its Own
William O. Jenkins, Jr. (au)
The growing number of disaster declarations -- a record 98 in FY 2011 compared with 65 in 2004 -- has contributed to increased federal disaster costs. The Fed. Emergency Mngt. Agency (FEMA) leads federal efforts to respond to and recover from disasters and makes recommendations to the President, who decides whether to declare a disaster and increase the usual federal cost share of 75%. This report addresses (1) the number of declarations requested and approved from FY 2004-2011 and associated Disaster Relief Fund (DRF) obligations; (2) the criteria FEMA used to recommend a declaration for public assistance (PA), and the extent that FEMA assessed whether an effective response to a disaster was beyond the capabilities of state and local governments; (3) how FEMA determined whether to recommend cost share adjustments, and their costs; and (4) FEMAńˇ╗s administrative cost percentages for declarations. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
