FEMA Disaster Deductible Update

By the end of this year the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is intending to release a revised proposal to establish a “Disaster Deductible.” Current FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate has explained the proposal is intended to help control the costs of disasters as well as incentivize states and localities to take preventive measures in preparing for disasters. APWA is monitoring this issue and will post information as soon as it is available. You may also check www.fema.gov for updates and additional information.
