Site Information
BACKGROUND: As a result of disasters, services provided at public and private nonprofit (PNP) facilities may be disrupted to the extent that they cannot continue unless they are temporarily relocated to another facility. Applicants may request that their services be relocated temporarily to continue that service. Criticality of the service and safety of the facility are the factors used to determine the need for temporary relocation.
Section 403 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as amended (Stafford Act), authorizes FEMA to provide Federal assistance to meet immediate threats to life, and property resulting from a major disaster. Specifically, Section 403 (a)(3)(D) allows for the provision of temporary facilities for schools and other essential community services, when it is related to saving lives and protecting and preserving property or public health and safety. For essential facilities, temporary relocation may be eligible both for immediate relocation and/or for relocation during repairs/reconstruction when the repair/reconstruction is begun within the timelines outlined in this policy.
