Public Assistance Deadline Approaching
The deadline for all Requests for Public Assistance is Friday, February 11. Public Assistance is a FEMA program that is available to help repair after a presidentially declared disaster.
Private Nonprofit organizations (PNPs) that own or operate facilities that provide certain services of a governmental nature. Qualifying PNPs (501c3, for example) are those that provide the following services:
For a PNP operated facility to be eligible, the PNP must demonstrate the facility provides a critical service or provides a non-critical, but essential government service and is open to the general public. A facility that provides a critical service is defined as one used for an educational, utility, emergency, or medical purpose.
Nonprofits that provide a public service to the general public can complete a Request for Public Assistance to notify FEMA of the intent to pursue funding. Any entity that is eligible for funding can submit a Request for Public Assistance form through FEMA at LouisianaPA.com. Go to the page and click on the Request for Public Assistance and register the organization’s intention to submit for Public Assistance funding to repair after the storm.
