Intergovernmental Affairs Advisory
February 20, 2013
On January 29, 2013, President Obama signed into law the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act of 2013 (P.L. 113-2) (SRIA). The law authorizes several significant changes to the way the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) may deliver disaster assistance under a variety of programs. FEMA is currently developing specific implementation procedures for each new authority and will provide further guidance through a combination of rulemaking and the development of policy or other guidance documents.
Please see the fact sheet, detailing the program changes authorized by the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act. If you have any further questions, please contact FEMA's Intergovernmental Affairs Division at (202) 646-3444 or at FEMA-IGA@fema.dhs.gov.
