On November 10, 2021, President Biden amended a Major Disaster Declaration to include Public Assistance for Ionia and Wayne counties as the result of severe storms and flooding that occurred June 25-26, 2021.

Declaration 4607-DR-MI authorized assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Public Assistance Grant Program (PAGP) to provide grants to state and local governments as well as certain nonprofit entities to assist with community response and recovery. The program aids with debris removal, emergency protective measures, and permanent restoration of infrastructure.

 

To receive federal reimbursement, all potential applicants are required to submit a Request for Public Assistance (RPA) in FEMA’s Grants Portal (www.grantee.fema.gov). Once the RPA is submitted, federal officials will work with the appropriate applicant personnel to develop specific projects for consideration of reimbursement.

 

The Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division (MSP/EMHSD) will host a virtual Applicant Briefing to provide an overview of the PAGP, discuss eligibility requirements, and explain the project application and reimbursement processes. To obtain maximum benefit from the information presented at the briefing, a potential applicant should have representatives from its management, emergency response, and accounting/finance/procurement operations participate.

 

Each potential applicant is required to attend a virtual Applicant Briefing. Please sign into the briefing chat with your name, agency, and email or phone number to confirm your attendance. Eligible applicants may include state, tribal, and local units of government as well as certain private/non-profit (PNP) organizations including those providing critical services such as education, emergency medical, utility and emergency services or essential social services, including but not limited to, community centers, homeless shelters, houses of worship, libraries, nursing homes, etc. For more details on potential applicant eligibility and a more comprehensive list of potential PNPs, please see the Public Assistance Program and Policy Guide (PAPPG)(V4), pages 42-48. The Applicant Briefing for 4607-DR-MI will be held on:
