Region III includes Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia. In 2014, all of FEMA's grants for man-made accidents were directed toward the West Virginia chemical spill. FEMA's Public Assistance (PA) Grant Program provides assistance to state, tribal, and local governments, and certain types of private nonprofit organizations so that communities can quickly respond to and recover from major disasters or emergencies declared by the President. Through the PA Program, FEMA provides supplemental federal disaster grant assistance for debris removal, emergency protective measures, and the repair, replacement, or restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly owned facilities and the facilities of certain private nonprofit organizations. The PA Program also encourages protection of these damaged facilities from future events by providing assistance for hazard mitigation measures during the recovery process.
OpenFEMA shares data in order to support the ability for the U.S. to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate hazards. Data reflected here exclude grants related to weapons of mass destruction terrorism. FEMA and the Federal Government cannot vouch for the data or analyses derived from these data after the data have been retrieved from the Agency’s website. Numbers may not add up due to rounding.
