GFOA Joins State and Local Partners in Letter to FEMA

GFOA has joined the National Governors Association, the National Association of Counties, the National League of Cities, and other state and local partners in a letter to FEMA addressing an upcoming rule proposal.  The letter requests a delay in the adoption of a proposal titled, “Cost of Assistance Estimates in the Disaster Declaration Process for the Public Assistance Program.”

The proposed rule revises part of FEMA’s review process under the Public Assistance Program and aims to more accurately assess state disaster response capabilities.
