Public Assistance Resources
FEMA’s Public Assistance (PA) Grant Program provides support to state or local governments and selected private nonprofits to help them respond to and recover from federally declared disasters and emergencies. Generally, the PA Program reimburses 75 percent of the approved project costs. Public Assistance may include debris removal, emergency protective measures, and the restoration of damaged infrastructure. The PA Program also encourages increased resilience through funding eligible mitigation measures that reduce vulnerability in future disaster events.
