year, the United States is struck by disasters that severely affect States and
local governments and utilities. The list of natural disasters includes
hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, snowstorms, and droughts. The effects of
disasters may be limited to a single community, such as when a town is hit by a
tornado, or they may be widespread, such as when a hurricane affects an entire
region of the country. Regardless of the scope of a disaster, the affected
utilities, individuals, communities and States often need the assistance from
the Federal government when responding to and recovering from an event. This
assistance is available through FEMA under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster
Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. § 5121 – 5207.
Landa (Sullivan & Ward, P.C.) will describe the process for obtaining a Presidential Disaster Declaration,
the application for federal assistance and the new challenges faced by the
states, communities and non–profits in obtaining funding to rebuild and,
surprisingly, in keeping that funding once it is awarded.
