Review highlights of key public assistance program changes, including clarified guidance and operational coordination of incident finance activities, the appeal process, closeout policy and documentation requirements, and additional procurement and contracting requirementsl

Learn about how to establish an incident finance organization during the disaster so the right information is collected up front and clear expectations are set with contractors and vendors; changes to grant management cost policies; and how to avoid mistakes related to what can be considered eligible work, eligible costs, and reasonable costs.
