DHS-Program Coordinator (1836)
Program Coordinator for FEMA program.
The mission of Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) Grant Program is to provide assistance to state, tribal and local governments, and private non-profit organizations so that communities can quickly respond to and recover from man-made or natural disasters or emergencies declared by the President of the United States. Through the PA Program, FEMA provides supplemental Federal disaster grant assistance to account for various disaster recovery activities including debris removal, emergency protective measures, and the repair, replacement, or restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly owned/eligible private non-profit facilities.
The PA Program also encourages the protection of these damaged facilities from future events by providing assistance for hazard mitigation measures during the recovery process. Reimbursements through the PA Program are subject to a cost share; 75 percent of eligible costs are reimbursed, and the remaining 25 percent is to be covered by the applicant, though FEMA may choose to issue 100% funding to applicants for eligible costs during specific disaster events.
After a Presidential Disaster is declared, the program coordinator will spend a considerable amount of time working in the FEMA Grants Portal system, which is a website where all PA grants are tracked and administered.
