"The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released 'Guidance on Planning for Integration of Functional Needs Support Services in General Population Shelters,' commonly known as the FNSS. This guidance is intended to ensure that individuals who have access and functional needs receive lawful and equal assistance before, during, and after public health emergencies and disasters. This guidance can be incorporated into existing shelter plans. It does not establish a new 'tier' of sheltering or alter existing legal obligations."
