FEMA Needs to Improve Its Oversight of the Sheltering and Temporary Essential Power Pilot Program [open pdf - 4MB]
From the Highlights: "Following Hurricane Sandy, the New York City, Department of Environmental Protection (New York City) received $537.94 million in Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance grant funds for temporary power, heat, and hot water so residents could shelter-in-place. In January 2013, FEMA estimated New York City would spend $14.33 million of this essential assistance on repairs to multifamily structures, including properties with commercial owners or operators. Our objective was to determine the extent FEMA identified and received reimbursement due from New York City for Federal funds it spent on repairs to commercial residential properties."
