  49. 49. Project Specifics • Sub-applicants should be as comprehensive as possible with each project submission. – Provide pictures/ maps/ newspaper articles • Project specific checklists devised to streamline application process. • Period of Performance (POP) ends no later than 36 months from the close of the FEMA defined application period. – In previous grant cycles, POP began upon receipt of award letter. – Earlier POP start intended to speed up Federal review. – Performance extensions are still available and MUST be approved by FEMA Headquarters. RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  50. 50. Budget Specifics • Be conservative with cost estimate. – Include ALL necessary costs. – Consider future construction/ timeline in development. • NO “contingency” line items allowed. • Request for additional funds may be granted (case specific) after initial award. RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  51. 51. Alternatives • FEMA requests alternative project options be included in each submitted application. • Proposed project is considered Alternative #1. • Include two (2) feasible alternatives to proposed projects. – Try to avoid “No Action” alternative – Provide description for each alternative (example provided in Section F. of HMGP Application) RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  52. 52. Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA) • A quantitative procedure that assesses the costeffectiveness of a hazard mitigation measure by taking a long-term view of avoided future damages as compared to cost of a project. • BCA must be equal to or greater than 1.0 to be considered cost-effective. • BCA Resources – Version 4.8 available for download: http://www.fema.gov/benefit-cost-analysis • Version 4.8 is the ONLY version now accepted by FEMA – BCA Helpline : bchelpline@fema.dhs.gov RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  53. 53. BCA Continued • Benefits = damages & losses avoided with mitigation project implementation. – Avoided physical damages to infrastructure, buildings, contents, etc. – Economic impact of loss of function for roads, bridges, utilities, detour times, etc. – Avoided emergency response costs (evacuations, EOC costs, debris removal & clean-up costs). • Required for most projects applications (not plans). – BCA no longer required for projects where total costs are less than $276,000 (Acquisition) and $175,000 (Elevation). RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  54. 54. Record of Environmental Consideration Questionnaire • HMA programs and grants must comply with all environmental and historic preservation (EHP) requirements. • Two key considerations: – Is proposed project located in an area that has endangered or threatened species? – Will the proposed project impact historic or cultural resources? If yes, consider reevaluating scope of work to reduce adverse impacts RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  55. 55. Record of Environmental Consideration Questionnaire • Funds will not be awarded & project cannot start until FEMA environmental & historic preservation review is completed. – FEMA review completed to ensure compliance • Permits are NOT required during application period but application must explain which permits will be required (i.e. agency, cost, schedule). RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  56. 56. Record of Environmental Consideration Questionnaire • If project could possibly adversely impact the environment or a historically significant structure, please consult the appropriate state agency: – Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC) http://www.crmc.ri.gov/ – Department of Environmental Management (DEM) http://www.dem.ri.gov/ – Rhode Island Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission http://www.preservation.ri.gov/ RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  57. 57. Review Strategy • RIEMA expects sub-applicants to submit complete applications suitable for review. • Applications should highlight long-term benefits of proposed mitigation actions. • For project applications, where a BCA is required, supporting documentation must be provided to be eligible for consideration. • Applications must display sub-applicant’s ability to implement proposed work schedule in a timely manner. RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  58. 58. Reviewer Considerations • Is the proposed mitigation activity sustainable and/or provide environmental benefits? • Was proposed project submitted by sub-applicant with an approved hazard mitigation plan (HMP)? • Was proposed project identified and prioritized in local and/or State HMPs? • Does the proposed project intend to mitigate future damages originally caused by a declared event? - Proposed projects are NOT required to be located in federally declared disaster area and/or mitigate the type of hazard that caused the declared event but additional consideration is given to those that do. RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  59. 59. Application Overview • Develop an application that describes: – the problem – the solution with two (2) alternatives – the long-term benefits – the cost-effectiveness – Sub-applicant’s commitment to mitigation. – Sub-applicant’s ability to complete proposed project in a timely manner. RHODE ISLAND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
  60. 60. HMA Summary • • • • • FEMA HMA grants are an opportunity to implement mitigation measures and reduce risk. Reference the FY2013 HMA Unified Guidance for details on eligibility requirements. Develop a complete application that showcases long-term benefits of proposed project/plan. Take advantage of State and Federal HMA specific technical assistance opportunities (i.e. bulletins, helpline, trainings, etc.).
