FEMA/TDEM Public Assistance Award for Berlanga Building
Submitted By: Natalie Eckstrom, Grants Department
Department: Grants Department  

Discuss and consider the acceptance of a public assistance subaward #PA-06-TX-4223-PW-1820 (Berlanga Community Center) from the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM).
On May 29, 2015, a disaster was declared in certain Texas counties and assigned DR Number 4223 for damages sustained during the incident period of May 4, 2015 through June 19, 2015. As a result, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) authorized funds under the Public Assistance Program. FEMA filters the funds through the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM). The Public Assistance Program is a reimbursement program that provides funding to eligible applicants who have suffered damages as a result of a Presidential disaster declaration and whose damages are within a designated area for Public Assistance. Funding under this program is limited to repairing or replacing damaged items/facilities to their pre-disaster condition at the approved cost share. Additional funding may be provided once all other financial offsets have been exhausted (ex: insurance; cash donations; other grant awards).
Nueces County submitted several eligible projects to FEMA representatives. Severe storms and flooding during the declared incident period caused flooding of the entire town of Agua Dulce and the David Berlanga Community Center suffered flooding both inside the building and in the parking area. Standing water in the parking lot caused displacement of underlying soils and several sections buckled and cracked. Inside the building, flood waters caused damage to some drywall and insulation.

Subaward #PA-06-TX-4223-PW-1820 is in the amount of $82,775.08. The federal cost share amount (75%) is $62,081.31 and the County’s share amount (25%) is $20,693.77.
