FEMA seeks public comments from state, local, tribal and territorial governments, private non-profit organizations, and interested members of the public regarding the Agency’s proposed policy describing guidelines FEMA will follow when implementing section 705 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act). The proposed policy applies to all potential recoveries of payments made to state, Indian tribal government, or local government recipients and details how FEMA will determine whether Stafford Act section 705 bars FEMA from recovering assistance payments. 

Comments are due November 2, 2015, and should be submitted online.
