RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the execution of Grant Terms and Conditions for FEMA-4332-DR-TX in relation to receiving reimbursement for damages caused by Hurricane Harvey.
BACKGROUND
A major disaster declaration for Hurricane Harvey was declared on August 25, 2017. Nueces County was included in the declaration due to the extent of storm-related damages experienced in the area.
DISCUSSION
The Grant Terms and Conditions are the same as previous disasters, but rather than sending this to be signed each time a project is obligated, the Texas Division of Emergency Management is distributing now to alleviate a repetitive burden from the applicant (the County). These terms and conditions, as with previous disasters, must be accepted before any project funding can be distributed. Overall, the purpose of the PA grant is to bring facilities back to pre-disaster conditions, and the Terms and Conditions outline the standard requirements in accepting a federal grant.

The Grant Terms and Conditions have been reviewed by the County Attorney’s Office and it was suggested for the Commissioners Court to be made aware of the strict requirements the County must follow in order to receive FEMA reimbursement for eligible projects.

The Grant Terms and Conditions require the County to certify has the ability to meet or exceed the cost share required. For this disaster, the cost share is 90% federal and 10% local. At this time, an exact cost share amount cannot be provided. Each individual project in our damage inventory will eventually be issued a project worksheet, which will identify all damages and associate a cost to those damages. It would be at that time that the County would know what the cost share would be for each project.
