HURRICANE SANDY RECOVERY IMPROVEMENT ACT: PILOT PROGRAM EXTENDED

Jul 02 2014

We’re thrilled that an extension has been put in place for the Public Assistance Alternative Procedures Pilot Program for Debris Removal in response to the widespread impact of Hurricane Sandy. The program is now in effect through June 27, 2015.

These are the alternative procedures for debris removal that are part of this pilot program:

• Accelerated Debris Removal – Increased Federal Cost Share (Sliding Scale)

• Recycling Revenues

• Straight-Time Force Account Labor

• Debris Management Plan and one (1) or more Pre-Qualified Contractor(s)

In short, this program allows all affected jurisdictions the opportunity to receive additional funds and incentives if they were prepared with a debris management plan and a contractor identified prior to the event. If you have questions or would like more information about how your jurisdiction might benefit from this program, feel free to contact DRC.
